Remember the good old days of radio—when people had to use their imaginations—when the mind was a stage? Those days are back—only better! Andrew J. Fenady has written two of his award-winning productions as RADIO PLAYS where you can SEE as well as HEAR radio programs. The movie of the week starred Richard Thomas, Katharine Isobel, Charles Bronson and Ed Asner. A young girl writes a letter to the editor of the New York Sun. "Dear Editor, I am eight years old. Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus. Papa says if you see it in the Sun, it's so. Please tell me the truth. Is there a Santa Claus?" Ed Mitchell, the editor, assigns Frank Church—a reporter on the verge of self destruction—the task of answering Virginia's question. Church's quest and reply have become one of the world's most quoted and beloved editorials.

Theatre On The Edge

 

Hudson Theatre Works is committed to a growing and adventurous community genuinely hungry for challenging performance. We choose material that is aesthetically diverse and rooted in authenticity. From highly theatrical world premieres to distilled re-imaginings of modern classics, we put the work first and embrace risk.

PRAISE FOR OUR 2021/2022 SEASON

"Hudson Theatre Works mounts an ambitious and fulfilling Eugene O'Neill Festival. Both shows succeed beyond expectations."

- Jim Testa, NJ Arts

"The current production of ‘Hughie’ at Weehawken’s Hudson Theatre Works—produced in rep with ‘Desire Under the Elms’ as part of the company’s O’Neill festival—captures the essence of O’Neill’s late little gem with impressive precision... the production is intimate, unfussy, and affecting.”

- Patrick Maley, Star Ledger

"Licato understands Shepard... [He] has gotten the talented cast all onto the same page. They feel the rhythms of Shepard’s language, they dare to jump from word to word, sentence to sentence without a net."

- Open Box Arts

 

"Outstanding Work" - NJ Stage

This season is made possible by a grant from the NJ State Council on the Arts, a division of the Department of State, and administered by the Hudson County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs, Thomas A. DeGise, County Executive & the Hudson County Board of Chosen Freeholders.  We'd also like to thank Weehawken Mayor Richard Turner, Town Manager, Gio Ahmad, and the Weehawken town council.
