On Saturday and Sunday parking at National place is 15 dollars. I prefer the 2000 space lot at the Reagan building that tops out at 22 dollars. It is more spacious and easier to navigate with a truck or van.

I never saw a one-man show before this one. This sets a pretty high mark on the wall. Chazz is a very good storyteller. There was no intermission, but before you knew it, the show was over after about 1 1/2 hours. Chazz was up on stage just by...continued

More Information



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 a feature film adaptation alongside Robert DeNiro, Palminteri brings his original one-man play to a city near you 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."

About the Ticket Supplier: Warner Theatre

The Warner's special place in the history of Washington began in the 1920s when dozens of grand theaters and moviehouses lit up downtown. Built first for vaudeville and silent movies, the Theatre was opened as the Earle Theatre in 1924.

The Earle switched to a movies-only policy in 1945 and in 1947, owner Harry Warner, one of the Hollywood's Warner Brothers, visited Washington and told his tour guide Julian Brylawski (one of the original builders) that since he owned the theatre, his name should be on the marquee. Thus the Earle Theatre became the Warner Theatre.
