"I was sorry to discover that Greg Antonacci died six months ago -- there doesn't seem to have been any mention of it in the press. In recent years he probably was best known for his performances on "The Sopranos" and "Boardwalk Empire." He had been a longtime television actor, director and producer. "Dance With Me," for which he was the writer, lead actor and composer of incidental music, opened on Broadway in 1975 and ran for almost a year."
