Home Theater Oscar Winner Forest Whitaker Coming to Broadway in Eugene O’Neill’s “Hughie”

Oscar winner Forest Whitaker is coming for Tony Awards season next spring. He’ll star in Michael Grandage’s production of Eugene O’Neill’s “Hughie.” The Shuberts are producing. It will be a short run to try and get Whitaker a Tony Award, then adios. But we’ll see how receptive the Broadway community– and the Tonys– are to another Hollywood star swooping in to collect a gold statue. It doesn’t work most of the time. But the box office should be big, and that’s the main thing.
