Predictable, Great set, Danny devito!!

See it if you're in the mood for a light drama with some humorous moments, led by DeVito who's had a long career playing these sort of characters.

Don’t see it if you're looking for complexity. The play's characters are single-note, there's not a whole lot going on, and especially the ending is weak.

Cluttered stage made me nervous, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Funny

See it if Danny devito was great, nice to see him act with his daughter. That made the ending more believable. Sorry game scene was the best

Don’t see it if The hoarding itself isn’t funny and the set can be triggering. Some of the story is repetitive. Still I enjoy Theresa rebeck storytelling.

More information about I Need That on Broadway

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.

What to watch for

  • Danny DeVito stars opposite his daughter, Lucy DeVito, in I Need That on Broadway. She's making her Broadway debut, but she has performed off Broadway in Love, Loss and What I Wore and Hot Mess.
  • Moritz von Stuelpnagel, who directed Rebeck's Bernhardt/Hamlet on Broadway in 2018, also directs I Need That. Both productions also happened with Roundabout Theatre Company.
  • Rebeck inspired the character of Broadway writer Julia Houston, played by Debra Messing, on the 2011 NBC show Smash. Rebeck was also a writer on the show.
  • Danny DeVito has appeared in multiple productions off Broadway, making his debut with Shoot Anything With Hair That Moves and The Man With the Flower in His Mouth in 1969. He made his West End debut in 2012 with The Sunshine Boys in London.
