Standards & Stories
Combining timeless music with wit, charm, storytelling, and a dash of soft shoe and ukulele performances, Danza and his four-piece band perform a selection of his favorite standards from the “Great American Songbook” while interweaving stories about his life and personal connection to the music.
The hit live 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 said, “His voice and showmanship is a welcome reminder of why the standards are just that—because they’re timeless. The man has true stage presence like we don’t see anymore. His singing voice is on par with any of the great performers of yesteryear or any year. Seeing Tony Danza on stage in your lifetime is a must,” said Scott Spears of WWGH Radio.
Danza has been one of the world’s most beloved and iconic entertainers for over 40 years. Danza starred in two of television’s most cherished and long-running series, Taxi and Who’s The Boss , and 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, he has also starred on Broadway in The Producers, A View from the Bridge, and received rave reviews for his performance in the Broadway musical comedy, Honeymoon in Vegas.
Danza most recently starred in the Hulu original film, Darby and the Dead, Power Book III: Raising Kanan on Starz, the Netflix series The Good Cop, There’s Johnny on Hulu, the animated feature, Rumble, for Paramount, and And Just Like That, the sequel to Sex In The City, on HBO Max. Danza also has a much buzzed about sequel to Who’s the Boss in development with Amazon’s Freevee.
