"With work this strong, it should be only a matter of time before others catch on to Hudson Theatre Works."
- Patrick Maley, The Star Ledger
THANK YOU FOR A GREAT SEASON!
Hudson Theatre Works had its best season yet! October 2021 saw the premiere of "Bunnies," by New Jersey playwright, Joanne Hoersch (which will be published by Next Stage Press). In December we presented a live production of "Elliot & Me," which went on to have runs around the country. 2022 began with our critically acclaimed O'Neill festival, which included the rarely performed "Desire Under the Elms, along with "Hughie." The season concluded with "Curse of the Starving Class," by Sam Shepard.
We look forward to an amazing 2022/2023 season which will kick off with our annual 10 Minute Festival. We will announce the rest of the season in August. Stay tuned!

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
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.
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.
