Chazz Palminteri to go it alone on Broadway in October

Chazz Palminteri's one-hander, A Bronx Tale, directed by Jerry Zaks, will be coming to the Walter Kerr this autumn, with previews beginning on October 4. The official opening is October 25. The show will run until February 10. ( A Catered Affair will follow A Bronx Tale into the Kerr).

Palminteri's semi-autobiographical Tale, in which he assumes all 18 roles, played Off-Broadway in 1989. It was later expanded and made into a movie in 1993, starring Palminteri and Robert DeNiro, who also directed the flick.

Palminteri appeared in the Off-Broadway production of The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui. Films include Bullets Over Broadway(Oscar nomination), Hurly Burly, The Usual Suspects and A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints.
