Brush up on your “door test” skills and take a date to A Bronx Tale, opening at the Walter Kerr Theatre tonight. Chazz Palminteri returns to the semi-autobiographical role about a Bronx boy hustling on the streets of the upper borough. Mr. Palminteri’s performances of the one-man act in Los Angeles and Off-Broadway in the late 1980s inspired the 1993 film of the same name, directed by Robert De Niro.
About the film, Palminteri told Variety, "Over the years I’ve done over 50 movies, but everybody comes over to me and talks to me about ‘Bronx Tale.’ I walk down the street, I have people yelling lines from the movie at me. It’s bigger than me." [Check here for tickets.]
Follow the forlorn-looking navel-gazers to the …And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead concert at the Bowery Ballroom on Nov. 23. Marnie Stern, who is making way more exciting noise music than the Trail of Dead right now, will warm up the crowd. Check out a preview of her live show here. [On Sale: Thursday, Oct. 25 at noon.]
Neil Young added another concert to his nearly week-long run at the United Palace. To nab tickets for the Dec. 19th show, gulp down your morning coffee and get your best clicking finger at the ready Monday morning. These babies are selling out fast. [On Sale: Monday Oct. 29 at 10 a.m.]
