The Original One Man Show
The inspiration behind the 1993 movie and the recent hit Broadway musical, A Bronx Tale is Chazz Palminteri's (The Usual Suspects, Modern Family) enthralling coming of age tale set on the streets of the mob-controlled The Bronx of the 1960s. This one man show has been staged both on and Off-Broadway, and this year, Palminterri is taking it on tour for a very limited number of dates.
The story follows the fortunes of Bronx kid Calogero, who is taken under the wing of local mob boss Sonny. As Calogero grows older, and heads ever deeper into Sonny's underworld, his father must try and wrestle him away from a life of crime. A showcase of Palminterri's enviable theatrical talent, the play requies him to inhabit 18 separate characters.
