On Broadway, Danza most recently received rave reviews for his performance in the critically acclaimed Broadway musical comedy, Honeymoon in Vegas, with the New York Times calling his performance “sly genius” and a “career high.”
His previous stage credits include Wrong Turn at Lungfish (1993), for which he earned an Outer Critic’s Circle Award nomination, critically acclaimed The Iceman Cometh, Arthur Miller’s Tony Award–winning play A View from the Bridge, and I Remember You.
Danza starred in the Netflix original series “The Good Cop” and was most recently cast in CBS’ “Blue Bloods.”
Danza is extremely active in a number of New York City charities and community programs. At the 2019 ADAPT Leadership Awards, he was honored with the Hausman Humanitarian Award in recognition of his exceptional humanitarian contributions to the community.
