John Turturro, Tony Shalhoub and Jessica Hecht also star in the new staging of the Arthur Miller drama.

Danny DeVito will make his Broadway debut in Roundabout Theatre Company's starry revival of Arthur Miller’s 1968 drama The Price.

The seasoned actor, who began his career in multiple Off-Broadway productions, will play the wily Russian furniture dealer Gregory Solomon in the new staging.

John Turturro will lead the cast as Victor Franz, who abandoned his dream of an education to support his father after the family fortune was lost in the Great Depression. The play explores Victor's struggle to make peace with the past when he returns to his childhood home three decades later to sell what remains of his parents' estate.

Tony Shalhoub will play Victor's estranged brother Walter, a successful doctor, with Jessica Hecht as Victor's wife, Esther.

Steppenwolf Theatre Company co-founder Terry Kinney will direct the production, which begins previews Feb. 16 at the American Airlines Theatre, officially opening March 16. The limited engagement is scheduled to run through May 7.

Roundabout has a long history of producing Miller's plays, most recently with After the Fall in 2004 and The Man Who Had All the Luck in 2002. The company previously staged The Price in 1992, with Hector Elizondo as Victor Franz.
