BENJAMIN SCHWARTZ certified reviewer June 10, 2015
"Boss: The Untold Tony Danza Story" fires HARD on all cylinders. The cast is not only talented, but extremely well rehearsed (something you can't say about most fringe shows this year). The writing is quick, witty and accessible. I admit, I've never seen an episode of "Who's The Boss?" so I was a bit unsure going in whether or not I would understand references or the show in general. Writer, Damien Luvara, has carefully taken his laymen audience into consideration while still staying true to the source material. I had a couple friends that know "Who's The Boss?" backwards and forwards that came along with me and they were repeating lines and talking about past episodes that were referenced (quite subtle at times) in the show. Just a joy to w... full review

The energy this cast brings to the stage will get you sitting tall in your seat as you ride with them on this campy comedy! Totally went home and watched Taxi and Who's the Boss. ... full review

RUN TO THIS SHOW! This show is back and better than ever. The cast led by Damien Luvara are all so strong; comedic timing has been finely tuned! The script is playful and rich with industry inside jokes. This show is a lot of fun! Not a chance anyone walks out of that theater without a smile on their face. ... full review

I laughed... A LOT!!! The cast does a fantastic job embodying the actors and characters I grew up with. Particularly Damien Luvara and Summer Shirey, who had me forgetting I wasn't seeing the real Tony Danza and Judith Light up on the stage. At one point I did find myself asking "what the heck is going on here?", but then I just let myself be swept into the hilarity of this absurdist comedy and enjoyed the rib shaking ride.... full review

Outrageous in almost every way - definitely a fun show to catch, especially if you're a fan of Who's the Boss. By the end of the show, I was convinced that was really Tony Danza on that stage. Lots of fun!... full review

This is a great show -- the cast is amazing. Even if you've only seen a couple of episodes of "Who's the Boss?" it's apparent even before the actors are addressed onstage who they're playing -- Damien Luvara's Tony Danza and Summer Shirey's Judith Light especially stand out. Damien's due in part to his uncanny resemblance to Danza (as well as his spot-on characterization) and Shirey has managed to capture so many of the little acting tics and mannerisms that I wasn't even aware that Judith Light did, until I saw it on the stage. It took me a about 10 minutes to understand where the story was going -- I thought it was going to be almost a mock "E! True Hollywood Story" of Tony Danza's life (maybe something you might want to explore for a f... full review

As a long-time Tony Danza fan (perhaps because I never had to work with him during my years in The Biz), this caught my attention immediately and was my first ticket purchase for this year's festival! As a mimic, DAMIAN LUVARA is breath-taking, sliding along the knife-edge between recognizable Reality and Parody with great, great skill. I'd love to see him do another role---if he can! The rest of the cast is excellent, too, and sometimes funny---but the script is Something Else: an Absurdist concoction indeed, inhabiting a Parallel Universe to the actuality of the genesis of WHO'S THE BOSS? Why go so far afield to make up something? The Truth Was Bad Enough! It might be better to parody Tony's two-season talk show, and bring on the WHO... full review

This is a really fun show. If you were a child in the 80s, you can't not enjoy Boss. It brings back so many memories. The cast does incredible impersonations of Tony Danza, Judith Light and Alyssa Milano, and the rest of the cast is great as well. They brought this show back from last year's Fringe, so this is probably your last chance to see it. Definitely a must-see - worth every penny.... full review
