Personally, I catch this 1993 film every time it’s on TV because its characters are so intriguing. Now you can experience it when its originator, Chazz Palminteri, brings “A Bronx Tale” and its 18 characters to life on the stage of Easton’s State Theatre on Saturday at 8 p.m. Academy Award-nominated actor Palminteri wrote a one-man show in 1989, about a killing he saw in the Bronx when he was 9 years old. He performed it at a little theater in Hollywood, where it became an overnight hit much like “Rocky.” But Palminteri refused to sell the rights to the big screen unless he played the character of Sonny and wrote the screenplay. He held out and got his wish for Robert DeNiro to come on board, but DeNiro would do so only if he (DeNiro) could direct it.
