‘Honeymoon in Vegas’ Planning Spring 2013 Broadway Opening

Honeymoon-in-VegasTony Danza will headline the new musical, Honeymoon in Vegas, that will open on Broadway in the spring of 2013. The opening will follow a premiere this November in Toronto.

Based on the film of the same name, the show will feature music and lyrics by Tony Award-winner Jason Robert Brown and a book by Andrew Bergman (director and screenwriter of the film). Gary Griffin (The Color Purple) will direct.

The musical tells the story of Jack Singer, a regular guy with an extreme fear of marriage. When his girlfriend Betsy puts the pressure on, Jack finally pops the question and they head to Sin City for a whirlwind wedding weekend. But when Vegas wise guy Tommy Korman catches a glimpse of the stunning bride-to-be, and notices her uncanny resemblance to his late wife, he does everything possible to break up the romance and get his own second chance at love.

At this time, no other casting has been announced.  

Danza is mostly known for his starring roles on the beloved long-running series Taxi and Who’s the Boss?, among many others, for which he received an Emmy and four Golden Globe nominations). He appeared on Broadway and in Las Vegas as Max Bialystock in Mel Brooks’ hit musical The Producers, and received acclaim on Broadway as Eddie in the 1997 production of A View from the Bridge and Rocky in Kevin Spacey’s production of The Iceman Cometh.
