Boss is fantastic from start to finish! From the moment Damien steps out on stage as Tony we are in it; setup so well for the fun that will continue to ensue! The entire cast understands the style of the piece very well and they all seem to be playing the same game. Each maintaining an excellent pace together to perfectly convey the fun and hilarity of Boss!... full review

This is such a fun, great show! I was very impressed with the entire ensemble cast but the stand-outs were Damien Luvara as Tony Danza and Summer Shirey as Judith Light. They really channeled these iconic TV stars, particularly in terms of their physicality. The show is full of 80s nostalgia, from the awesome costuming to the music and it offers a creative, imaginative take on the origin story of "Who's the Boss." Highly recommend! ... full review

Quite a fun and silly show. What a treat! The cast sparkles and you can tell they're having fun and it's contagious. The casting is great too. Damien is absolutely Tony Danza - unbelievably so! Summer as Judith Light, shines brightly and is also hilarious. Danny P - seriously, nailed it! The whole cast is great and to single them out individually is a challenge because they all really shared themselves with us (the audience) in such an abundant way. ... full review

My gal and I saw "Boss" yesterday evening and really enjoyed it. Lots of laughs (not surprisingly). But what was surprising was a reverence for the material. Luvara so fully embodies Tony Danza that I actually felt Tony's big heart and sweet good nature. All the other actors were terrific as well, mixing a tongue in cheek/wink wink/ nod nod approach with a genuineness that proved highly effective. This might well be credited to the deft direction by Matt Ritchie.... full review

So I wasn't a huge Who is the Boss fan growing up (I know sacrilege) but you don't have to be to love this irreverent show. It moves at breakneck speed and the laughs keep coming. I loved the video montage (usually a no no in theatre but it worked perfectly here). Boss: The Untold Tony Danza Story is a wonderful send-up and homage all at the same time. Kudos! ... full review

Everyone will enjoy this funny, farcical and fast paced alternate world story of how Who’s the Boss? came to be. Children and fans of the 80’s should listen closely for every side joke and cultural reference. The cast is excellent with Damien Luvara spot on with the looks and mannerisms of Danza and Summer Shirey pairing with him as a hilarious Judith Light. It’s great to watch all the actors inhabit their characters and take the audience for a ride. You’ll laugh at the performances and the memories it brings up of your own not so distant past. And, pay attention to catch the cast recreate the Who’s the Boss? intro sequence – very funny. Grab a ticket and enjoy the whole experience.... full review
