NEW YORK (AP) — Tony Danza's love affair with "Honeymoon in Vegas" will go on — on tour.

The Broadway Booking Office said Wednesday that the "Taxi" and "Who's the Boss?" star will lead a North American tour of the show in 2016. Additional casting and tour venues will be announced later.

The show was adapted from a 1992 movie starring James Caan, Nicolas Cage and Sarah Jessica Parker. It has music by Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown and tells the story of a reluctant groom whose bride-to-be is courted by a Vegas wise guy, played by Danza. One of the highlights is a troupe of glittery flying Elvises.

The show opened on Broadway in January to good reviews but dismal box office receipts and closed in early April.
