News   Tony Danza to Star in Los Angeles Run of I Remember You Tony Danza will headline an upcoming Los Angeles staging of Bernard Slade's I Remember You at Burbank, California's Falcon Theatre.

Falcon Theatre and Judy Arnold Productions present the work which begins previews Oct. 18 and opens Oct. 27 for a limited engagement through Nov. 12. Walter Painter directs.

"Set in a smoky Manhattan cabaret, amidst the plinking piano keys and the whiskey smooth standards," reads a show description of the work by the Same Time, Next Year author, "a charming piano player lands in a love triangle."

Danza ("Who's The Boss," "Taxi," The Iceman Cometh) will be featured in a cast that also includes Robin Riker (All My Sons - Geffen Playhouse), Richard Gilliland ("24," Little Egypt) and Madison Dunaway (Steel Magnolias - Falcon, Agnes of God - International City Theatre).

Recently the host of his own talk show, Danza has also appeared in Showtime's remake of "12 Angry Men" and on "The Practice." The actor made his theatrical debut in Wrong Turn at Lungfish then played in the Broadway revival of Arthur Miller's A View from the Bridge in 1998. He followed up that stage turn with a role in the 1999 revival of The Iceman Cometh. Other credits include the world premiere of Johnny Boy at Falcon, "Crash," "Angels in the Outfield," "She's Out of Control" and "A Brooklyn State of Mind."

The Falcon's season continues with The Troubadour Theater Company's new holiday spoof, JACKson FROST, a fable with music by Jacksons A-Z. Then, in the spring comes Gordon Hunt's staging of the world premiere of the '70s cult classic comedy film, Where’s Poppa? adapted for the stage by Robert Klane.
