Danny DeVito Demonstrates How He Eats a Hard Boiled Egg on Stage in Broadway’s ‘The Price’

It’s hard to believe that Danny DeVito is making his Broadway debut in Arthur Miller’s The Price after so many years as an actor — and being originally from right across the Hudson River in New Jersey, no less. While it might have been a long wait, critics say it’s worth it — DeVito has received near-universal praise for his standout performance as eccentric antiques dealer Gregory Solomon, and has been nominated for both a Tony Award and a Drama Desk Award for the role. Yet his most impressive feat on stage at the American Airlines Theatre isn’t anything he says or how he delivers it, it’s a key scene in which Solomon ingests a hard boiled egg in the middle of a scene of dialogue — and continues the scene, spewing bits off egg throughout.

It’s something that’s great fun for the audience, but a bit challenging for DeVito. Speaking in a video for the New York Times, DeVito reveals his onstage egg-eating technique and talks about performing for a Broadway audience. He says, “It’s fun every night. It’s different every night. When you’re up there it’s like skiing. It’s like going down the mountain.”
