My overall impression

Tony Danza, Judith Light, and the rest of the cast, from the classic sitcom, “Who’s the Boss?” are put through the ringer, in this wild and farcical romp, playing at the Complex. Damien Luvara and Summer Shirey, star as the titular actors from the ‘80s TV show, who are earnestly trying to solve the drought in their acting careers, when they are met by a mob boss, played by Gabriel Rissa, who has big plans to make some money and end their malaise. But the problems quickly arise when Tony and Judith try to maintain their probity in a business, and world, that doesn’t care about such things. With adept direction from, Matt Ritchey, and a strong supporting ensemble including Todd Stroik, Krista Conti, Edward Kiniry-Ostro, Lauren Virginia Albert and others, the play packs in the laughs and delivers a wickedly fun take on the “E! True Hollywood Story,” or should I say, UN-true Hollywood Story? Go!

#CANCELLED: The Play

Staying relevant is a full-time job, and the last thing you want to be is #Cancelled. A washed up child star. An up-and-coming music producer. An “influencer-by-accident”. What do they have in common? An internet scandal big enough to break them.
