Rebeck's play follows Sam, a hoarder who struggles with agoraphobia. As he faces eviction, his daughter Amelia tries to rescue him from his piles and piles of possessions, which are full of reminders of his past.
The performance is Danny DeVito's first return to Broadway since his Tony-nominated performance in Roundabout's The Price.
I Need That features scenic design by Alexander Dodge, costumes by Tilly Grimes, lighting design by Yi Zhao, sound design by Fitz Patton and Bradlee Ward, and original music by Patton.
