For the first time in his life, Tony Danza has a mustache.
“I’m actually doing an episode of Broad City
, playing Abby’s father,” he told SF Weekly
. “I have a mustache, cause I wanted to look like my father. I’m looking at [a picture of] him right now, and I swear I look like him. And if I put on glasses, well, holy crap!”
The sitcom actor — and Broadway star, author, tap dancer, and one-time boxer — is in his 60s now, and still getting by on the same infectious charm that helped his alter ego Tony Micelli talk his way into the Connecticut home of a high-powered ad exec named Angela, and her sexually active mother.
Tony Danza brings his show, Standards & Stories
, to Feinstein’s this weekend for three nights. It’s something of a retrospective, sprinkled with anecdotes from a long career that began when the Rat Pack was still alive and working, and it is, in Danza’s words, a “grown-up act.”
