Entertaining and charming! We meet two highly offbeat characters, a Broadway dancer and a science professor coping with physical and emotional challenges as they forge an unexpected friendship in this heartfelt play. Filled with laughs and the intricacies of the human condition, we witness their journey of discovery and personal triumph as they come to realize that sometimes the most profound experiences can occur when least expected.
The play features Mandy Evans (Machinal, Twelfth Night), and Bess Miller (Hamlet, Little Foxes).
The show is directed by Frank Licato, produced and stage designed by Gregory Erbach, Sound Design/Music by Donald Stark, props by Beatriz Esteban-Messina, and Stage Managed by Dawn D’Arrigo.
THEATRE ON THE EDGE
Hudson Theatre Works is committed to a growing and adventurous community genuinely hungry for challenging performances. 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 HUDSON THEATRE WORKS
"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."
