Even if you haven't seen the movie, CP does a great job of delivering an unbelievable performance that anyone can follow.

Hi, I loved the movie and thought that seeing it done live with only Chazz to act out the parts was never going to equal the full cast, but I have to say, he did a great job and I would recommend it to friends without hesitation.

Description

In A Bronx Tale, the celebrated play on which he based the legendary movie, Chazz Palminteri brings 18 characters to vivid life in this gripping tale of a rough childhood on the Bronx streets. A Bronx Tale was first mounted Off-Broadway in 1989 and helped establish Palminteri as a writer and actor with a distinct voice. After starring in the feature film adaptation alongside Robert DeNiro, Palminteri brings his original one-man play to Boston with direction by four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks. 

Says Chazz: “A Bronx Tale is a fictionalized story based on a true incident. When I was a young boy growing up in the Bronx, I witnessed a man shoot another man right in front of me while I was sitting on my stoop. At that time, I thought they were fighting over the parking space in front of my building. I never did find out what they were fighting  over, but it doesn’t matter now anyway. That incident was how A Bronx Tale began.”
