ABOUT THE SHOW
1928. New York City. A hotel lobby. A small-time gambler and big-time drinker (Forest Whitaker) makes his way back to Room 492. With a new night clerk (Frank Wood) on duty, he is forced to confront his personal demons and discover the real end to his own story. Eugene O'Neill's Hughie is a rarely seen theatrical masterpiece about the loneliness and redemption of one man chasing the American Dream.
- This is one of two plays by Eugene O'Neill written before his death but not produced until afterwards that are being revived on Broadway this season. The other is Long Day's Journey Into Night.
- This production reunites 2010 Tony Award-winning director Michael Grandage for the first time with his complete Tony-winning design team from John Logan's Red, the 2010 Tony-winning Best Play.
The play was first performed in Sweden in 1958, and then on Broadway in 1964. It has previously been revived twice before on Broadway. Hughie has been televised at least five times in five different languages.
