Gruff-voiced actor Chazz Palminteri is well-known for his tough guy roles, notably in "Analyze This," "The Usual Suspects" and, of course, "A Bronx Tale," his autobiographical journey through the streets of the dangerous New York neighborhood of his youth. Palminteri wrote "A Bronx Tale" as a one-man play that was originally staged in L.A. and New York with the actor portraying all 18 roles himself. It attracted Robert De Niro for his directorial debut as a feature film, and the rest, as they say, is history.
"A Bronx Tale" -- and Palminteri -- is back on stage, fresh off of a triumphant run on Broadway, and will open at Chicago's Ford Center for the Performing Arts Oriental Theatre on Tuesday, March 10. Praised by critics and audiences alike, "A Bronx Tale" is directed by four-time Tony Award-winner Jerry Zaks.
