Palminteri's Bronx Tale Plays Atlantic City

July 2, 2009 – Chazz Palminteri, the lauded actor and playwright who is a longtime ally in the fight against thalassemia, will be presenting his acclaimed one-man play, A Bronx Tale, in Atlantic City through August 9.


Set in The Bronx section of New York City in the 1960s, A Bronx Tale tells the story of Calogero Anello, a young boy from a working class family who gets involved in the world of organized crime.

As Calogero gets older, the aura and mystique of the Mafia, and the charms of Sonny, the local mob boss who befriends Calogero (and ends up becoming a father figure to him), become difficult to resist. As Calogero comes of age, he must struggle with the choice of following his beloved father’s values or submitting to the temptations of the life of organized crime.
