Eugene O'Neill's two-hander Hughie returned to Broadway in the spring of 2016 starring Forest Whitaker, making his Broadway debut, in a revival helmed by Tony Award-winner Michael Grandage.

1928. New York City. A hotel lobby. A small-time gambler and big-time drinker makes his way back to Room 492. With a new night clerk on duty, he is forced to confront his personal demons and discover the real end to his own story. Hughie is a rarely seen theatrical masterpiece about the loneliness and redemption of one man chasing the American Dream.
