Now Playing Onstage in Rhode Island - Week of 2/23/2014Chazz Palminteri's "A Bronx Tale" in Broadway" border="0" height="100" width="100" align="right"> CHAZZ PALMINTERI'S "A BRONX TALE"
The Vets
3/1-3/1/2014
Well known for A BRONX TALE, Palminteri originally wrote the script for the stage and performed it as a one-man show in Los Angeles. It became the hottest property in Hollywood since ROCKY. Mr. Palminteri was offered over a million dollars to walk away from the project and with $200.00 left in the bank he refused. He wanted to play Sonny and write the screenplay. One night Robert DeNiro walked in to see the show and as they say "the rest is history." He then moved the production to New York, where it played for four sold-out months and earned him nominations for the New York Outer Critics Circle for both acting and writing. While in New York he completed the screenplay of A BRONX TALE and soon found himself starring opposite Robert DeNiro in the film. Chazz will perform the original one man show he did in 1989 that made him a star.
