Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College continues its 2016-17 season on Sunday, November 20, 2016 at 3pm with the beloved star of stage and screen turned song-and-dance man Tony Danza performing his new hit show, Standards & Stories. Accompanied by his talented four-piece band, Brooklyn-born Danza will perform a selection of his favorite standards from the Great American Songbook, along with selections from the hit Broadway musical Honeymoon in Vegas (in which Danza starred), while interweaving stories about his life and personal connection to the music. Tickets are $36-$55 and can be purchased at BrooklynCenter.org or by calling the box office at 718-951-4500 (Tue-Sat, 1pm-6pm).

The New York Times raved, "Tony's a live wire who tap-dances, plays the ukulele, tells stories and radiates irresistible charm... He exudes the kind of charisma that can't be taught!"
Best known for his starring roles on two of television's most cherished and long-running series, Taxi and Who's the Boss?, Danza has also established himself as a Broadway song-and-dance man, and most recently received rave reviews for his performance in the Broadway musical comedy, Honeymoon in Vegas, with The New York Times calling his performance "sly genius" and "a career high." He has also starred on Broadway in The Producers, A View from the Bridge, and opposite Kevin Spacey in The Iceman Cometh.

Tony Danza: Standards & Stories is part of Brooklyn Center's 2016-17 Con Edison Music Masters Series, which also includes The Dr. Lonnie Smith Trio (Feb 25, 2017 at 8pm), Emeline Michel in concert (Mar 4, 2017 at 8pm), Patti Austin: Ella Now and Then (Apr 22, 2017 at 8pm), and the Yosvany Terry Afro-Cuban Sextet (May 6, 2017 at 8pm).

Phil Hall presents LEGACY
Thursday, November 10th at 6:00 pm
Lincoln Center – Bruno Walter Theatre


This Special Show Is FREE and Open To The Public

leg·a·cy 'leg?se/ noun
an account of what an individual achieved during his/her life and career;
what we leave behind that others remember us by

Phil Hall-- musical director, arranger and creator of The Philhallmonics and frequent performer with The Philhallmonics at the Lincoln Center Library Concert Series--is delighted to present a special concert called Legacy to be presented at the Bruno Walter Auditorium (Lincoln Center Library of the Performing Arts, 40 Lincoln Plaza – Enter on Amsterdam at 65th Street) on Thursday, November 10th at 6:00 pm. This special show is Free and open to the public (first come first serve).
“Legacy” features Philhallmonics favorites Karen Arlington, Linda Moshier, Bruce Rebold, John DiBartolo as well as Gelan Lambert, Mary Lee Marson, Bill Newhall, Erica Penn and Julie Waldman-Stiel. The band for the show includes: bj Karpen (Oboe), Peter Calo (Guitar), Pete Donovan (Bass) and Chris Marshak (Drums). The Sound Design is by Bob Rendon and the Projectionist is Bob Westerfeld.
When asked why he felt such passion about launching his new show, Legacy, Mr Hall replied, "During this Presidential campaign, it's been difficult for me to even follow the Presidential race for the White House because of the bullying tenor of the primaries, and the emphasis on winning at all costs no matter who, and how many are thrown under the bus in the process. I think that we, as Americans, are better than this. And even if we did not have the United States in common, we, as human beings and global citizens, need to treat one another with more kindness, compassion and dignity. It also made me realize how important art is as a measure of who we are, and what we leave behind or pass down to subsequent generations."

Legacy will feature songs of happiness, hope, and inspiration from some classic and recent Broadway musicals as well as a few songs from beloved films, as well as Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah”.


This Special Show Is FREE and Open To The Public
