Tony Danza as relentless theatrical reprobate Max Bialystock?
Danza, best known for his roles on the TV sitcoms "Who's the Boss?" and "Taxi," will star in the Broadway production of "The Producers" beginning Dec. 19.
He will be joined by Roger Bart, who will play mild-mannered Leo Bloom in the Tony-winning Mel Brooks musical at St. James Theatre. Danza will be in the show through March 11, while Bart's engagement will end a month earlier, on Feb. 11.
Bart created the role of Carmen Ghia in the original company of "The Producers," which opened on Broadway in April 2001.
