About I Need That on Broadway

Golden Globe winner Danny DeVito stars in I Need That, the newest comedy from Theresa Rebeck that kicks off Roundabout Theatre Company's 2023-24 Broadway season. Get I Need That tickets on New York Theatre Guide.

In Rebeck's I Need That play, DeVito plays Sam, a reclusive hoarder who prefers the company of his things to the company of people. But when threatened with eviction if he doesn't clean up his place, Sam must finally decide what's trash and what's treasure. The distinction, it turns out, is muddy.

I Need That is the fifth Broadway play of Theresa Rebeck, following Mauritius, Seminar, Dead Accounts, and Bernhardt/Hamlet. Rebeck has written more than 40 full-length plays and one-acts that have appeared off Broadway and beyond. Her play Omnium Gatherum was a finalist for the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

In I Need That on Broadway, DeVito stars opposite his daughter, Lucy DeVito. The play is Danny DeVito's second Broadway gig after 2017's The Price (which earned him a Best Featured Actor Tony nomination) and is Lucy DeVito's Broadway debut.

What has Danny DeVito been in?

Danny DeVito has appeared in more than 100 movies and TV shows during his 50-plus-year career. He is best known for his Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning performance as Louie De Palma in Taxi and, currently, as Frank Reynolds in It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. He is also a director and producer of films including Matilda.

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.
