Photo Coverage: Tony Danza Sardi's Caricature
Stage, screen, television and recording artist Tony Danza, who is currently playing Max Bialystock in The Producers, was present on February 22nd for the unveiling of his caricature at the legendary Sardi's Restaurant.
Danza's engagement ends on Sunday, March 11, 2007. The show, as previously announced, is set to close on April 22nd. The Producers , featuring a Tony Award-winning score by Mel Brooks, a Tony-winning book by Brooks and Thomas Meehan and Tony-winning direction by Susan Stroman, also stars Hunter Foster (Leo Bloom), Brad Musgrove (Carmen Ghia), Bill Nolte (Franz Liebkind), Lee Roy Reams (Roger DeBris) and Angie Schworer (Ulla).
Perhaps best known for his work in "Taxi" and "Who's the Boss?," Danza's other television credits include hosting the popular talk show "The Tony Danza Show," Showtime's "12 Angry Men" (opposite George C. Scott and Jack Lemmon), an Emmy-nominated turn in David E. Kelley's "The Practice, " and "Family Law." Danza's screen credits include the Academy Award-winning feature film Crash, Walt Disney's Angels in the Outfield, She's Out of Control, and A Brooklyn State of Mind. For his theatrical debut in Wrong Turn at Lungfish, he earned an Outer Critic's Circle Award nomination. After his Broadway debut in Arthur Miller's A View from the Bridge, Danza received critical acclaim for his portrayal of 'Rocky' in the revival of Eugene O'Neill's The Iceman Cometh opposite Kevin Spacey (Brook Atkinson Theater). In the fall of 2006, Danza starred in the romantic comedy I Remember You on stage in Los Angeles. Also a cabaret performer, he released his debut album "The House I Live In" in 2003.
