Tony Danza to star in Celebrity Autobiography on Broadway
Celebirty Autobiography on Broadway is scheduled for three performances at the Marquis Theatre.
Emmy and 4-time Golden Globe nominee Tony Danza has been added to the line-up for the previously announced Broadway premiere of Celebrity Autobiography, which is now scheduled to play the Marquis Theatre on three Monday evenings throughout this winter: November 26, December 10 and December 17, all beginning at 8:00pm. (The December 3 show has now been cancelled due to scheduling conflicts).
Tony Danza last appeared on the Broadway stage in the 2015 premiere of Honeymoon in Vegas and previously starred as Max Bialystock in The Producers, and in the 1999 revival of Eugene O'Neill's The Iceman Cometh and the 1997 revival of Arthur Miller's A View from the Bridge. He is perhaps best known for his 3-time Golden Globe-nominated role as X on "Who's the Boss?" and his Golden Globe-nominated role as Y on "Taxi". He also earned an Emmy Award nomination in 1999 for his performance as Tommy Silva in "The Practice" and notable film credits include "Angels In Outfield," "She’s Out of Control," "Hollywood Knights," and "Don Jon".

Created by Emmy Award nominee Eugene Pack and developed by Pack alongside Dayle Reyfel, Celebrity Autobiography was first staged in Los Angeles in 1998 and went on to gain grain popularity thanks to a 2005 television special on Bravo. Beginning in 2008, Celebrity Autobiography has been regularly mounted off-Broadway at the Triad, featuring a stellar line-up of comedic actors performing from the actual memoirs of a wide variety of stars, ranging from Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Reynolds, and Eddie Fisher to Richard Burton. It has since been performed in London's West End, in Edinburgh, and at Australia’s Sydney Opera House.
Celebrity Autobiography on Broadway is produced by MagicSpace Entertainment, Angelo Fraboni, Carl Pasbjerg, Dayle Reyfel and EP Productions.
