Danny DeVito makes Broadway debut in The Price

The Roundabout Theatre Company have announced that Danny DeVito will make his Broadway premiere in its forthcoming production of Arthur Miller's The Price, directed by Steppenwolf co-founder Terry Kinney, which will begin previews at Broadway's American Airlines Theatre on 16 February 2017, before an official opening on 16 March, and a limited engagement through to 7 May 2017.

DeVito will join the previously announced cast of The Price that includes Emmy winner and Golden Globe nominee John Turturro (Victor Franz), Golden Globe & Emmy winner and three-time Tony nominee Tony Shalhoub (Walter Franz) and Tony nominee Jessica Hecht (Esther Franz).

Golden Globe & Emmy nominee DeVito returns to the New York stage where he began his career acting in multiple Off-Broadway productions including Shakespeare in the Park. Most recently, he starred in a 2012 West End production of Neil Simon's The Sunshine Boys opposite the late Richard Griffiths.

Synopsis: "When the Great Depression cost his family their fortune, Victor Franz gave up his dream of an education to support his father. Three decades later, Victor has returned to his childhood home to sell the remainder of his parents' estate. His wife, his estranged brother, and the wily furniture dealer hired to appraise their possessions all arrive with their own agendas, forcing Victor to confront a question, long-stifled, about the value of his sacrifice. Arthur Miller's The Price is a riveting story about the struggle to make peace with the past and create hope for the future."

The creative team will also include sets by Derek McLane, costume by Sarah J. Holden, lighting by David Weiner and Rob Milburn and sound by Michael Bodeen.
