Danny DeVito to Make Broadway Debut in ‘The Price’

Danny DeVito has signed on to join John Turturro and Tony Shalhoub in “The Price,” the Arthur Miller play getting a Broadway revival in the spring from Roundabout Theater Company.

DeVito makes his Broadway debut in the show as the furniture dealer appraising an estate recently inherited by two brothers (Turturro and Shalhoub). The “Always Sunny in Philadelphia” star got his start on stage in Off Broadway shows including “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” before transitioning to TV (“Taxi”) and film (“Romancing the Stone,” “Weiner-Dog,” the upcoming “The Comedian”). In 2012 DeVito starred in a West End revival of Neil Simon comedy “The Sunshine Boys,” and subsequently starred in the show in L.A.

Jessica Hecht (“Fiddler on the Roof”) rounds out the four-person cast of “The Price,” to be directed by Terry Kinney. The production comes on the heels of a Broadway season that saw starry revivals of two Arthur Plays, “The Crucible” and the Tony-winning “A View from the Bridge.”

The show, which begins previews Feb. 16 ahead of a March 16 opening at the American Airlines Theater, is part of a 2016-17 season at Roundabout that includes “Holiday Inn,” “The Cherry Orchard” and “Love Love Love.”

    Broadway Review: 'Ink' With Jonny Lee Miller

    Garish, lurid and brash, “Ink,” the British import now on Broadway in a Manhattan Theatre Club production, is the theatrical equivalent of its subject, the UK’s Daily Sun — the newspaper that reshaped British journalism and propelled Rupert Murdoch’s ascent to media mogul. Like the tabloid, it feels unsubstantial, rushed and icky. You can’t say [...]
