Palminteri brings ‘Bronx Tale’ one-man show to Ruth Eckerd


Published:   |   Updated: September 16, 2013 at 12:58 PM

Chazz Palminteri’s one-man show, which spawned his breakout performance in the 1993 film “A Bronx Tale,” is coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall on March 9.

Tickets for the show, written and performed by Palminteri, go on sale Saturday at noon.

Palminteri originally wrote the script for the stage and performed it as a one-man show in Los Angeles in 1989, where eventual co-star Robert DeNiro saw it and developed it into the film.

The show, an autobiographical account of Palminteri’s witnessing of a murder first-hand as a child, eventually moved to New York, where it earned several directing and writing awards before going nationwide.

Aside from his role as Sonny LoSpecchio, Palminteri, 61, has starred in more than 50 movies in addition to performing off-Broadway in the early 1980s and singing in his own band.

Tickets range from $35 to $55 and will be available at the Ruth Eckerd Hall Ticket Office, 1111 McMullen Booth Road in Clearwater, or by calling (727) 791-7400. A limited number of $95 VIP packages also are available, which include a premium seat and Meet & Greet opportunity.
