Story for Bullets Over Broadway

Featuring existing music from the 1920s, Bullets Over Broadway includes a new adapted book by Allen. The new Broadway musical comedy tells the story of an aspiring young playwright who is forced to cast a mobster’s talentless girlfriend in his latest drama in order to get it produced.

Scrubs star Zach Braff makes his Broadway musical debut in the role of playwright David Shayne. The Broadway production will also feature Vincent Pastore, who played Sal Bonpensiero in The Sopranos, in the role of gangster Nick Valenti.

The 1994 film Bullets Over Broadway, starring John Cusack and Broadway vets Dianne Wiest and Jennifer Tilly, was nominated for seven Academy Awards. Wiest won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.

Critics’ Reviews for Bullets Over Broadway

"Director-choreographer Susan Stroman at the top of her game with a toothsome cast and a gag-filled book surrounded by repurposed jazz standards. Who knew Broadway could still be this much fun?"

David Cote, Time Out New York

"The book is funny, the staging inventive, the cast outstanding, the sets and costumes satisfyingly slick. It has the sweet scent of a box-office smash."

Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal

"With Bullets Over Broadway, his first Broadway musical, Allen has created an old-fashioned, madcap lark of a show that seems precisely where it belongs."

Linda Winer, Newsday
