Description

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."
