Summer, 1928. New York City. Beyond the bright lights of the Great White Way, a small-time gambler and big-time drinker returns to the faded hotel he has made his home. He encounters a new night clerk at the front desk and as the early hours of the morning give way to another dawn, he continues to chase the American Dream in order to survive. Hughie is a rarely seen theatrical masterpiece that beautifully investigates the themes of loneliness and redemption and offers a unique insight into the human condition.

Critics’ Reviews

Deeply satisfying, 'Hughie' glows thanks to Forest Whitaker onstage and Michael Grandage as director—the perfect people for the jobs.

Review by Mark Kennedy from Associated Press

In Michael Grandage's dream of a revival, the excellent Forest Whitaker gives a transfixing Broadway debut.
