NEW Y0RK, N.Y., Aug. 8 (UPI) -- Actor Chazz Palminteri is set to bring his one-man show "A Bronx Tale" to Broadway this fall for a limited engagement, said Wednesday.

"The Usual Suspects" and "Bullets Over Broadway" star performed his semi-autobiographical show in Los Angeles and Off-Broadway in the late 1980s before expanding it into the 1993 film, “A Bronx Tale.”

Palminteri co-starred in the movie version alongside Robert De Niro, who also directed the film.

In the stage show, Palminteri plays 18 roles.

Variety said Go Productions and Jujamcyn Theaters will produce the New York run, which is scheduled to begin its 18-week engagement Oct. 4 at Manhattan’s Walter Kerr Theatre.

Jerry Zaks has signed on to direct.

"I've done over 50 movies, but everybody comes over to me and talks to me about 'Bronx Tale,'" Palminteri told the trade paper. “I walk down the street, I have people yelling lines from the movie at me. It's bigger than me."
