The Broadway revival of Eugene O’Neill’s Hughie, starring Oscar winner Forest Whitaker, will offer $37 rush tickets for its final week of performances.
Directed by Tony and Olivier Award winner Michael Grandage, the production opened at the Booth Theatre on February 25 and will play its final performance on March 27. The discounted tickets will be available at the Booth box office on the day of the performance.
Set in the lobby of a second-rate Manhattan hotel, small-time hustler Erie Smith (Whitaker) mourns the recent death of the old night clerk, Hughie, and regales the new clerk, Charlie Hughes (Tony winner Frank Wood), with tall tales from his glory days spent with his now-deceased pal.
For Hughie, Grandage reunites the entire Tony-winning creative team behind the 2010 Broadway production of Red, including Christopher Oram (sets and costumes), Neil Austin (lighting), and Adam Cork (sound design). Darren Bagert, Michael Grandage Company, and the Shubert Organization serve as producers.
