Chazz is such a great actor - he did a wonderful job telling his "Bronx Tale". The Balboa theater is quite old and there is hardly any room in front of your seat. The seats are not staggered, so I had a hard time seeing around the person with the big hair in front of me. I loved the show, though.

The venue was beautiful to begin with. I am a fan of Chazz Palminteri and I love the movie version of A Bronx Tale. This live, one man performance exceeded my expectations. He was brilliant! I recommend this performance, you must see it!
In 1989 Chazz Palminteri wrote a one-man show about a killing he saw in the Bronx when he was nine years old. He performed it at a little theater in Hollywood California. It became a hit and the most sought-after property since Rocky. With only two hundred left in the bank and million dollar offers, he refused to sell his play unless he played Sonny and wrote the screenplay. He held out and got his wish with Robert De Niro. This is the original one-man show he wrote and performed in 1989 that made him a star.
Born in 1952, Palmintieri grew up in a tough area of the Bronx and it gave young Calogero (Palminteri’s given first name) the life lessons that would later prove very useful to his career. He started out pursuing his craft in studying at the Actor’s Studio with Lee Straussberg. He appeared off-Broadway in the early 1980s while paying his dues as a singer in his own band.
Run Time: 82 minutes, no intermission
Recommended for ages 6 and up.
