Danny Lanzetta is an exciting new spoken word artist and novelist. His dynamic words span an array of subjects, from his biting indictment of Bill O'Reilly to the forlorn and melancholy moments of everyday life. Lanzetta’s spoken rhythm record, The Story of a Minute in America, is a dizzying combination of music and word
s. And coming soon, Lanzetta's second novel: Gadfly. In a previous life, Lanzetta starred on Broadway in Neil Simon’s Lost in Yonkers, Les Miserables, and in off-Broadway’s critically acclaimed Falsettoland. He also appeared for two years on the CBS television series Brooklyn Bridge as Alan Silver. Among the distinguished people he has worked with include Kevin Spacey, Anthony Hopkins, Marion Ross, John Spencer, Mickey Rourke, Mercedes Ruehl and Mimi Rogers. Lanzetta has been writing seriously for over fifteen years, both poetry and prose, spurred on by his adolescent disillusionment with the acting business and a tiny high school creative writing class that co-starred a former chess champion and a classically trained singer. His debut novel, Drunken Angel, released by independently in 2002, is an American love story about those classical, but never tired themes of heartbreak and hope. Lanzetta also writes many of the lyrics for Chris Cubeta’ of Chris Cubeta and The Liars Club. He is a a college professor and is unquestionably the world’s most devout New York Knickerbockers fan.
