Chazz Palminteri: A Bronx Tale
Years before he was an Academy Award nominee, restaurateur, and fictional detective being stymied by The Usual Suspects, Chazz Palminteri was hustling for success in small Off-Broadway plays and moonlighting as a bouncer alongside Dolph Lundgren. But when Chazz got canned from that bouncer gig for refusing service to a famed movie agent, it freed him to write his autobiographical play A Bronx Tale. And in a fit of showbiz irony, upsetting a movie big wig eventually resulted in the making of a movie star.
A Bronx Tale is based on Chazz’s life growing up in the 1960s, but isn’t a sentimental story of stickball and doo-wop. It’s about a teenaged boy torn between two father figures. One is his actual father, a stoic bus driver filled with wisdom and morality. The other is the seductive Sonny, the local mob boss who’s taken the boy under his wing. And as the young man struggles with temptation, a murder raises the stakes all the more. The one-man show made waves across LA and New York, where an impressed Robert De Niro decided to direct it as a film in 1993, casting Chazz in his first leading role. But in this special performance, modern audiences get the chance to see A Bronx Tale in its original intimate form: just Chazz, a stage, and a transparent fourth wall.
