(Dover, DE) March 21, 2023—Actor, filmmaker and playwriter, Chazz Palminteri will tell his story of the famous 1988 play “A Bronx Tale” at Bally’s Dover Casino Resort on Friday, June 23, 2023 at 9PM. Tickets range from $40-$100 and are on sale Friday, March 24, 2023 at 10AM. Tickets can be purchased below. A portion of ticket sales will be donated to The Delaware Italian American Foundation (DIAF).
Chazz was born in the Bronx, New York where he began pursuing his career at the Actor’s Studio. In 1988 he wrote a play for himself, which depicted his childhood bringing all 18 characters to life in a one-man stage commentary. Throughout the years Chazz stubbornly refused the sale of his play unless he was packaged as both the actor and screenwriter. With Robert DiNiro as a mentor in 1993 “A Bronx Tale” was finally born and Chazz became an “overnight” star. Other movie and TV roles include Bullets Over Broadway, One Eyed King, Running Scared, Body Armour, Rizzoli & Isles and Godfather of Harlem as well as many others. Chazz can be found still telling his story with friends from the industry and his old neighborhood each Monday on his podcast the Chazz Palminteri Show. He also keeps busy as a partner in Manhattan’s Empire Steak House.
“We’re excited to partner with Royal Prime Events and welcome Chazz to the Rollins Center stage and Bally’s Dover family, his way of storytelling is a treat for that of all ages,” said Nick Polcino, Bally’s Dover Casino Resort Vice President and General Manager. “Kicking off the summer season with Chazz is one of the many experiences we are excited to bring to the community as 2023 continues.”
The Delaware Italian American Foundation (DIAF) is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to providing a voice to the heritage through events, scholarships, and strong partnerships with other cultural and community organizations.
