Eugene O'Neill's Hughie
Em Booth Theatre
Summer, 1928. New York City. Beyond the bright lights of the Great White Way, a small-time gambler and big-time drinker returns to the faded hotel he has made his home. He encounters a new night clerk at the front desk and as the early hours of the morning give way to another dawn, he continues to chase the American Dream in order to survive.
Hughie is a rarely seen theatrical masterpiece that beautifully investigates the themes of loneliness and redemption and offers a unique insight into the human condition. Academy Award®, Golden Globe®, and BAFTA Award winner Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland, The Butler, Southpaw) makes his highly-anticipated Broadway debut in the emotionally charged play Hughie by the great Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Eugene O’Neill.
This production also features Tony Award® winner Frank Wood (Side Man, Angels In America, Clybourne Park) and is directed by the Tony® and Olivier Award-winning visionary director Michael Grandage (Red, Frost/Nixon, The Cripple of Inishmaan), who is reuniting for the first time with his complete Tony-winning design team from the hit play Red.
