If you’re walking down Eighth Avenue in Chelsea in the early evening and look inside the Joyce Theater box office, you may notice a slightly built, blond-haired young man named Danny Pintauro. For eight years, from 1984 to 1992, Mr. Pintauro starred on Who’s the Boss? , the absurdly ubiquitous (thanks to syndication) sitcom in Read More
