Theater Talks: Hughie Presented By Schomburg Center

Schomburg Center is always curating great events. This one is no exception. Continuing with their Theatre Talks event we’ve seen previously with The Color Purple & The Royale, tonight a discussion with Forest Whitaker about his Broadway debut in Hughie will be livestreamed. The moderator for the evening will be Broadway Black founder, Andrew Shade. You can watch the livestream below. This is bound to be a great discussion that you don’t want to miss. Join us on twitter for the discussion using #TheaterTalks!

Hughie is set in the lobby of a small midtown hotel on the West Side of Manhattan where Erie Smith, a drunken, small time hustler, is mourning the recent death of the hotel’s night clerk, Hughie. Erie regales the new night clerk with tall tales of his glory days spent with Hughie. Join lead actor Forest Whitaker in his Broadway debut in conversation with director and Tony Award-winner Michael Grandage and other members of the cast and creative team.
