Perhaps one of the best shows to hit the Strip returns to the Venetian when Chazz Palminteri brings his “A Bronx Tale” for a limited engagement Oct. 7-18. Palminteri plays all 18 characters in this one-man show that tells this coming-of-age tale.
The story vividly depicts a young boy’s rough childhood in 1960s-era Bronx and the unforgettable people he encountered along the way. The story, based on the the celebrated play on which Palminteri based the legendary movie that was directed by and co-starred Robert De Niro, tells a tale of reaching your true potential and trusting your heart. The show was first mounted off-Broadway in 1989 and then revived on Broadway as a hit during the 2007/2008 season and continued on a national tour in 2009.
“A Bronx Tale” is directed by four-time Tony Award-winner Jerry Zaks and produced by GO Productions LLC, a Las Vegas-based production company.
The show starts at 8 p.m. and goes dark Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Expect Palminteri sightings all over the Venetian while he’s in town.
Tickets are priced at $45.75, $75.75 and $105.75 inclusive of tax and handling fees. The show runs approximately 85 minutes. A limited number of VIP Packages, which include front-row seats and the opportunity to meet Palminteri after the show, will be available for $165.75 per person inclusive of tax and handling fees.
