Chazz Palminteri, who stars in the one-man show he also penned, will be on hand to discuss the production, which is currently playing a limited engagement at the Walter Kerr Theatre through Feb. 24.

The one-man show — which the actor performed in Los Angeles and Off-Broadway in the late '80s that inspired the 1993 film of the same name — began previews at the Walter Kerr Theatre Oct. 4 and officially opened Oct. 25.

Go Productions, in association with Jujamcyn Theaters, produces the New York run, which is directed by Tony winner Jerry Zaks.

In the semi-autobiographical solo show, Palminteri plays 18 roles that depict "a rough childhood on Bronx streets populated by a cast of friends and enemies," according to press notes. For more information go to www.abronxtaleonbroadway.com.

Hosted by New York Post theatre columnist Michael Riedel and producer Susan Haskins, this edition of "Theater Talk" will air in the metropolitan New York City area on WNET/Thirteen at 1 AM.
