Palminteri To Tell Bronx Tale A Little Longer

Palminteri To Tell Bronx Tale A Little Longer

Regular readers will recall how wowed I was by the riveting storytelling ability of Chazz Palminteri in his breathtaking one-man show A Bronx Tale -- currently playing at Broadway's Walter Kerr Theatre.

Now it's been announced that the show will extend its run by two weeks until February 24 "due to ticket demand," according to Playbill. Additionally, Sunday evening performances have also been added for the month of December.

While the show's capacity dropped to just 55.2% last week, apparently there's still plenty of mojo left in the production directed by Jerry Zaks that enables Palminteri to tell his story of growing up in the Bronx. I know he succeeded in completely sucking me into it.

Last month, during the Broadway stagehands strike that shut down his show, Palminteri graciously addressed 900 New York City students from 13 of the Big Apple's public high schools; they had originally been scheduled to see him perform on November 14 in conjunction with the Theatre Development Fund’s Stage Doors Program. Instead, they had an opportunity for a conversational question and answer session.

If you haven't seen the show already, consider putting it on your list. It's that good.
