Chazz Palminteri on Tonight's 'Conan'
Chazz Palminteri, star and writer of Broadway's A Bronx Tale will appear on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" tonight Thursday, January 17th. "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" airs on Channel 4 - WNBC in the tri-state area between 12:30 - 1:30 AM.A Bronx Tale has extended its Broadway engagement at the Walter Kerr Theatre (219 West 48th Street) through February 24, 2008 due to popular demand. The show, directed by Tony Award-winner Jerry Zaks, opened on Broadway Thursday, October 25.
A Bronx Tale was first mounted off Broadway in 1989 and helped establish Palminteri as a writer and actor with a distinct voice. In A Bronx Tale, Palminteri brings 18 characters to vivid life, depicting a rough childhood on Bronx streets populated by a cast of friends and enemies.
Performing the show in Los Angeles and New York, Palminteri caught the attention of studios, producers and directors - all of whom wanted to make the film version - without him. Palminteri turned down a million dollar offer for the film rights, despite having $200 in his bank account at the time. Robert DeNiro came to see the show, and brought both it and Palminteri to the screen, making his directorial debut in the process.
A Bronx Tale produced on Broadway by Go Productions in association with Jujamcyn Theaters. Set design is by James Noone, lighting design by Paul Gallo, and original music and sound design by John Gromada. Mr. Palminteri's wardrobe is supplied by Italian menswear designer Isaia.
Playing schedule: Tue-Sat at 8 PM, Sat at 2 PM, and Sun at 3 PM. Tickets are $96.50, 76.50 and 26.50 and are available through www.telecharge.com, 212 239 6200. Premium tickets and Group Sales are also available through www.telecharge.com. Visit the website: www.abronxtaleonbroadway.com
