Taxi star Danny DeVito eyes Broadway bow early next year

Danny DeVito will make his Broadway debut next year as a wily furniture dealer in Arthur Miller’s The Price.

The Roundabout Theatre Company said the Emmy Award-winner from Taxi and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia will star alongside John Turturro, Tony Shalhoub and Jessica Hecht.

Performances begin on February 16 at the American Airlines Theatre.

Danny began his career in off-Broadway shows, including Shakespeare in the Park. In 2012, he starred with Richard Griffiths in a West End production of Neil Simon’s The Sunshine Boys.

In The Price, an embittered New York City police officer feels that life has passed him by while he took care of his now dead father.

He and his estranged brother, who left to become a successful doctor, must reunite to sell off their dad’s possessions.
