Tony Danza Performs ‘Standards & Stories’

authorStaff Writer on Nov 22, 2022

Though best known as an actor for his starring roles on two of television’s most cherished and long-running series, “Taxi” and “Who’s the Boss,” Tony Danza is also a singer, and on Saturday, December 3, at 8 p.m., he and his four-piece band are bringing their hit live show, “Standards & Stories,” to Suffolk Theater in Riverhead for one night only.

Combining timeless music with wit, charm, storytelling, and a dash of soft shoe and ukulele performances, Danza performs a selection of his favorite standards from the Great American Songbook while interweaving stories about his life and personal connection to the music.

The long-running hit show has entertained audiences around the country with The New York Times raving “Tony’s a live wire who tap-dances, plays the ukulele, tells stories and radiates irresistible charm … He exudes the kind of charisma that can’t be taught!” Broadway World raves, “Tony Danza is as good a crooner, as good an entertainer, as any of the men in tuxes who have come before him, and that includes that famous guy from Jersey… It is a genuine pleasure to listen to Danza sing… The standard of excellence.”

Danza has been one of the world’s most beloved and iconic entertainers for over 40 years. In addition to “Taxi” and “Who’s the Boss,” he also starred in hit films such as “Angels in Outfield,” “She’s Out of Control,” “Hollywood Knights” and “Don Jon.” Well established as a song and dance man, Danza has also starred on Broadway in “The Producers,” “A View from the Bridge,” and most recently received rave reviews for his performance in the Broadway musical comedy, “Honeymoon in Vegas.” He received an Emmy nomination for his guest spot on “The Practice,” and recently made a special guest appearance on “Blue Bloods” and “Power Book III: Raising Kanan.” Danza also has a much buzzed about “Who’s the Boss” sequel in the works, and co-stars in the upcoming 20th Century Fox feature film, “Darby and the Dead.”

Tickets for “Tony Danza: Standards & Stories,” on Saturday, December 3, at 8 p.m. range from $65 to $95 at Suffolk Theater is at 118 East Main Street, Riverhead.
