Friday, March 24
COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (January 23, 2017) – The hit play, “A Bronx Tale,” starring actor Chazz Palminteri, is returning to The Pavilion at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek on Friday, March 24, at 8 p.m.
Tickets priced at $65/$80/$100 go on sale Tuesday, January 24, via Ticketmaster locations, online at Ticketmaster.com, or by calling 800-653-8000. The Pavilion box office will open at 1 p.m. on the day of the show for on-site ticket purchases and will call pickup.
A New York City native, Palminteri originally wrote the script for “A Bronx Tale” for the stage and performed it as a one-man show in Los Angeles. It premiered in 1990, achieving great critical success. He then moved the show to New York City where it had a successful off-Broadway run.
“A Bronx Tale” tells the story of Cologero Anello, a young boy from a working class family who gets involved in the world of organized crime. Cologero’s father is a bus driver who tries to instill working-class family values in his son. As Cologero gets older, the aura and mystique of the Mafia, and the charms of Sonny (the local mob boss who befriends Cologero and ends up becoming a father figure to him), become difficult to resist. As Cologero comes of age, he must struggle with the choice of following his beloved father’s values or submitting to the temptations of a life in organized crime.
Academy Award winning actor Robert DeNiro helped turn the play into a movie, which premiered in 1993. Palminteri starred opposite DeNiro, who chose the script for his directorial debut.
Palminteri has more than 50 movies to his credit including “The Usual Suspects,” “Analyze This,” “Mulholland Falls” and “Bullets over Broadway,” for which he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.
