"Boss: The Untold Tony Danza Story" is an utterly absurd, completely hilarious reimagining of Tony Danza's rise, fall, and rise from his "Taxi" days through to his mid-80s reign as America's Sweetheart. The development of "Who's the Boss" is here portrayed not as a formulaic and pedestrian network programming decision, but as an epic struggle of good and evil, of temptation and redemption, of overcoming the odds and believing in yourself. The show works on several levels, simultaneously lampooning and celebrating the very popular culture "Boss" takes as its subject. If you are even vaguely aware of Tony Danza you should see this show.... full review

The Boss is hilarious, smart and so much fun! I wish this was the real story of Tony Danza! Direction was on point. Writing was smart. The actors are all funny and fun to watch! One of my favorites at Fringe!... full review

Boss: The Untold Tony Danza Story is a fun night at the theatre! The humor is very playful and tongue in cheek performed by a talented and willing cast. The references to 80s/90s sitcoms are awesome and it's fun how they are incorporated both subtly and obviously throughout the show. If you're looking for some absurdist humor that is told and performed in winning fashion, check out this play!... full review

SUPER fun show!! If you're a fan of 1980's TV at ALL, you need to see this! Tony and Judith are showstoppers and Danny and Alyssa are just fantastic! Lots of fast-paced pop culture humor, throwback comedy, and a super-funny twist! See BOSS before it sells out!!!... full review

I wish there was an option between "Amazing" and "Pretty Good". This was definitely worth the price of the ticket and had some insanely funny moments from a supremely talented cast. The intimate theater made me feel as if I were part of the show rather than watching it which I loved. The end dragged on for a bit but it's an incredibly unique script. The concept itself provokes laughter. Great job guys! Keep it up!... full review
