Tony Danza, co-star of the Broadway musical Honeymoon in Vegas, returns to Feinstein’s/54 Below nightclub in New York with his solo show Tony Danza, Standards & Stories, for six performances in late February, March, and April.

The Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated star of TV’s Taxi and Who's The Boss? will sing, dance, and tell stories from his career February 24 and 25, March 17, 18 and 31, and April 1, all starting at 7 PM at the club at 254 West 54th Street in Manhattan. He’s be accompanied by a four-piece band as he performs a selection of standards from the Great American Songbook, along with numbers from Jason Robert Brown’s Honeymoon in Vegas score, while interweaving stories about his life and his personal connection to the music.

The song list will include the following:

“If My Friends Could See Me Now” by Cy Coleman and Dorothy Fields
”Our Love Is Here To Stay” by George and Ira Gershwin
“Out of the Sun” by Jason Robert Brown
“I Love Betsy” by Jason Robert Brown
“It Was a Very Good Year”
“Angel Eyes”
“That's All”
“As Long as I’m Singing”
“How About You?”

The song list is subject to change.

The engagement of Standards & Stories is an encore of Danza’s 2016 Feinstein’s/54 Below debut. He originated the show in a booking at the Carlyle Hotel in 2015.

"I am thrilled to return to Feinstein’s/54 Below, such a terrific venue to see a show," Danza said. "Nothing beats playing in New York."

Danza is currently filming season one of There’s...Johnny! for NBC’s streaming site Seeso. The series is set behind the scenes at The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, with Danza playing Carson’s executive producer Freddie de Cordova. The show, which is scheduled to premiere at a date TBA later this year, will co-star Tony winner Roger Bart.

Danza’s other Broadway appearances include The Producers, A View from the Bridge, and The Iceman Cometh, opposite Kevin Spacey.

There is a $75–$85 cover charge for the Feinstein’s show, $110 VIP seating, $140 premium seating, and $25 food and beverage minimum. Tickets and information are available at 54below.com/events/tony-danza-standards-stories-2/
