Composer/lyricist Jimmy Webb, who is currently headlining together with Glen Campbell at Feinstein's at the Regency through May 20, is working with Chazz Palminteri on a musical version of A Bronx Tale. "I'll be working with Michael Feinstein on an album he's doing of my songs," Webb told Playbill On-Line, "and I'm working on A Bronx Tale with Chazz Palminteri."

Webb told Playbill On-Line about the collaborations immediately following his opening night performance with Campbell at the Manhattan nightclub Feinstein's on May 16.

Palminteri's A Bronx Tale was developed in Los Angeles at Theatre West Workshop before coming to New York where it was produced in 1989 at Playhouse 91. The story was later adapted as a feature film starring Palminteri and Robert De Niro.
