Actor Chazz Palminteri was so fiercely protective of his hit one-man play A Bronx Tale that he refused to sell the film rights to it unless he could write the screenplay and star as the play’s Mafia boss, Sonny. Eventually Robert DeNiro saw the play and saw so impressed that he granted Palminteri’s requests with a 1993 film adaptation that turned Paliminteri into an acclaimed screen actor. The project is still near and dear to Palminteri’s heart, though. Last year he revived the play, which details life growing up on the crime-filled streets of the Bronx, for a tour that stops at the Marcus Center through March 29. As always, Palminteri will take on the roll of 18 characters.

After four deaths at the Milwaukee County Jail under his watch in the last seven months, including one from dehydration, should there be an outside investigation into Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke?
