Hughie on Broadway - Tickets - Show Summary - Photos
Show Summary - Hughie Hughie is a play by Eugene O’Neill originally written in 1942, although the world premiere did not take place until 1958 in Sweden. The English language premiere took place in 1963 in Bath, England, and the Broadway premiere was in 1964. The show was then revived on Broadway in 1975 and again in 1996 starring Al Pacino. Now for the fourth time, this two-character play will play on Broadway. However this production is unique, as Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker will make his Broadway debut by starring in the lead role. Whitaker took home the Academy Award for Best Performance by a Lead Actor for the 2006 film The Last King of Scotland. He is renowned for a wide variety of screen roles, but this is the first time that the beloved actor will be performing on the professional stage.
The show is directed by Michael Grandage, whose eponymous production company The Michael Grandage Company is also producing, along with Darren Bagert and the Shubert Organization. The last production that Grandage directed and produced on Broadway was The Cripple of Inishmaan starring Daniel Radcliffe. Therefore, Grandage has proven his skills with directing a Hollywood star in a classic revival by a beloved playwright, and this is sure to be another fascinating production.

What Is Hughie Like? Hughie is renowned for its lengthy but gripping monologues performed by a character named Erie Smith, who was originally performed on Broadway by Jason Robards to great acclaim. The play is a two-hander, a conversation between Smith and a night clerk at a midtown motel named Charles Hughes. Erie Smith bemoans the recent passing of the previous night clerk, while the current night clerk listens on. The play is one of Eugene O’Neill’s many great works, a selection of which also include Long Day’s Journey Into Night, Desire Under the Elms, A Moon for the Misbegotten, and The Iceman Cometh, all of which have been revived on Broadway several times and in recent years in particular. With Forest Whitaker making his Broadway debut in this impressive role of the monologist Erie Smith, this production is surely not one to miss. Is Hughie Good for Kids? Hughie is most appropriate for children ages 10 and over. Children under the age of 4 will not be permitted inside the theatre.
