Will "Taxi" Star Bite Into Bialy in Broadway's Producers?

News   Will "Taxi" Star Bite Into Bialy in Broadway's Producers? Tony Danza is in talks to play Max Bialystock in Broadway's The Producers, a production source confirmed.

A mention of the possibility of the former talk-show host and star of "Taxi" playing the corrupt impresario first appeared in The New York Post.

The Brooklyn-born Danza, who is also a singer who has appeared in cabaret gigs around the country, appeared in Broadway's recent The Iceman Cometh and was a replacement as the brooding, angry patriarch of 1997's A View From the Bridge.

The Tony Award-winning Mel Brooks musical, The Producers, continues at the St. James Theatre.
