My Son the Waiter, A Jewish Tragedy tells the humor-filled and heartwarming tale of actor-comedian Brad Zimmerman, whose 29-year quest to build a performing career is supported by a "temporary" job in the restaurant industry. Zimmerman, who's opened for Joan Rivers, George Carlin and Brad Garrett, shares stories of his oft-hilarious family, career and none-too-successful love life in this one-man show that's played to appreciative audiences across the country. You might also recognize him from The Sopranos, where he played Johnny Sack's lawyer -- so at least he could say he met his parents' expectations, even if it was as a fictional character. Learn More

CP does a fantastic job of bringing 12 different characters to life and putting together an interesting story of growing up in the Bronx in the 60's.
Great venue (a continuously operating theatre since 1900!) and a very entertaining hour and a half.
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.”
