EXCLUSIVE: Bronx Tale writer-star Chazz Palminteri will play the title role, an eccentric thesp, in a staged reading of the new play Breaking Bobby Stone directed by veteran actor Peter Scolari (Girls). The comedy by Ben Andron (White’s Lies) tells the story of the reclusive Stone and a young reporter who’ll do whatever it takes to get an exclusive interview. Scolari, a top draw in NYC theater circles, calls it “a very funny play with heart and soul — I wish I’d written it, but I did not, which is a very good thing.” The cast includes more NYC stage regulars: Donna English, Bryan Fenkart, Robin de Jesús, Anthony Rapp, Sam Seder and Keala Settle. It’s looking to run next season, with no plans set as yet. The reading will take place at 3:30 PM February 10 at the Snapple Theater Center in Times Square.
