There's a crucial scene that will have audience members on the edge of their seats during A Bronx Tale, the musical that opens tonight at the Buell Theatre at the Denver Performing Arts Complex. It's not the climactic dance sequence, though: It's the moment when the character named Joey the Whale (played by Michael Barra) eats a slice of pizza.
