Winner of the 2016 Hollywood Fringe Festival Encore! Producers Award – ‘Tony Danza’s Letterz 2 2pac: an evening with Tony Danza’ is written and performed by comedian and writer Steven Benaquist (Dreamworks ‘Fishstick & Honeybear’, NPR’s ‘American Parlor Songbook, The Meltdown w/ Jonah & Kumail) and directed by Joe Wagner (UCB’s ‘Midnight Show’, HBO’s ‘Brody Stevens: Enjoy It!’)

When Tupac Shakur went to prison, Tony Danza saw a stranger in need of a friend and wrote him a letter. Tupac wrote back, beginning a correspondence for the ages. Presenting this intimate tete-a-tete between two giants of the 20th Century is Mr. Danza himself. …presented by Steven Benaquist.

Tony brings Tupac so fully to life (no holograms!) you’ll swear it’s a two-man show in this heart-warming performance celebrating the special, until-now-private bond between Ton’ and ’Pac.
