Danny DeVito first revealed his involvement in I Need That in 2022, when he and his daughter Lucy participated in a reading at the Dorset Theater Festival in Vermont.
DeVito is best known for playing Louie De Palma in the sitcom Taxi, earning Emmy and Golden Globe Awards. His other best-known credits, on and behind the screen, include It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (as Frank Reynolds), Hercules (as the voice of Philoctetes) and Matilda (as Harry Wormwood, director, and producer). His Hollywood career has steadily continued since 1970, and he earned a Tony Award nomination for his 2017 Broadway debut in The Price.
That play was an Arthur Miller revival. Now, DeVito works with a contemporary playwright: Theresa Rebeck. She has had four previous plays on Broadway — Bernhardt/Hamlet, Mauritius, Dead Accounts, and Seminar — and has written more than 40 that have appeared off Broadway, nationally, and internationally. She's a Pulitzer Prize finalist for her play Omnium Gatherum, which she co-wrote with Alexandra Gersten-Vassilaros.
See Danny DeVito return to the stage in this new comedy by Theresa Rebeck. Opposite his daughter Lucy, he stars as Sam, a reclusive hoarder who must clean up his home and his life or risk facing eviction — and makes some treasured discoveries in the process.
I Need That on Broadway is at New York's Todd Haimes Theatre.
I Need That on Broadway runs for 1h 40m.
