The “Nightman” cometh, perhaps to a theater near you.
Danny DeVito and his co-stars on FX’s “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” are taking their sitcom on the road, with a live-theater adaptation of last season’s musical finale, dubbed “The Nightman Cometh.”
Actor Rob McElhenney said the cast performed some of the songs at the Troubadour club in Los Angeles.
McElhenney said the show “sold out two nights in a matter of minutes and it went over really, really well, and Live Nation heard about it and approached us and said, ‘Hey, would you guys like to go on tour with this?’”
Performances will be held Sept. 15 in Boston, Sept. 16 in New York, Sept. 17 in Philadelphia, Sept. 22 in Seattle, Sept. 24 in San Francisco and Sept. 25 in Los Angeles.
DeVito, whose credits include the role of Martini in the early ‘70s off-Broadway revival of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” said the cast had “totally, totally so much fun” doing “Nightman” in Los Angeles “with the fans and everybody that was there.”
“It’s been really great to get back there and have that feedback from the audience,” the 64-year-old actor said Thursday.
And, yes, DeVito sings, too.
“He is to singing what Juice Newton was to … juice,” joked co-star Glenn Howerton.
