Preview performances began earlier this week for the highly anticipated Broadway revival of Eugene O'Neill's HUGHIE starring Academy Award® winner, Golden Globe Award® winner & BAFTA winner Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland, The Butler, Southpaw) and Tony Award® winner Frank Wood (Side Man, Angels In America, Clybourne Park), which will officially open on Thursday, February 25, 2016 at Broadway's Booth Theatre (222 West 45 Street). Directed by Tony Award® winner and Olivier Award® winner Michael Grandage (Photograph 51, Red, Frost/Nixon), Hughie will play a strictly limited engagement. BroadwayWorld brings you photos from their first curtain call below!

Michael Grandage reunites with the entire creative team from his Tony Award® winning production of Red and his current West End hit Photograph 51 starring Nicole Kidman including Tony Award® winner Christopher Oram (Sets & Costumes), Tony Award® winner Neil Austin (Lights) and Tony Award® winner Adam Cork (Composer & Sound). Each designer received a Tony Award® for their work on the production of Red.

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 explores redemption and offers a unique insight into the human condition.
