Chazz Palminteri Returns to BTP!

A BRONX TALE’s Chazz Palminteri, Academy Award nominee, returns to BTP as Artistic Advisor and will also serve as Advisor to the Acting Department!

He started out pursuing his craft in studying at the Actor’s Studio with Lee Strasberg. He appeared off-Broadway in the early 1980s while paying his dues as a singer in his own band.
