"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

DESIRE UNDER THE ELMS
Featuring: Gregory Erbach*, Michael Gardiner, Tony Knotts*, Dale Monroe, & Ryan Natalino
Eugene O’Neill’s masterpiece of erotic desire takes a Greek tragedy and sets it on an American Gothic farmstead. The son can see that his father’s new young wife plans to push him out. His passionate hatred for her is only matched by hers for him. Blinded by passion, they are set on a collision course. But the rest of the world is not blind.
Featuring: Nick Hardin* & Adrian E Wattenmker
High-rolling gambler Erie and Hughie, the credulous night clerk at a single-occupancy hotel, were confidants. Hughie admired Erie for his bold lifestyle and Erie considered Hughie his good luck charm. When Hughie dies unexpectedly, Erie's luck changes for the worse and he finds himself in dire straits. Then Erie meets the new night clerk who reminds him enough of Hughie that he takes the gamble that his luck is about to change.
