NEW YORK (AP) -- Forest Whitaker will make his Broadway debut this spring as a drunken, small time hustler in a revival of Eugene O'Neill's "Hughie."
The Academy Award and Golden Globe winner will play Erie, who tells his tale to a sympathetic soul in a rundown hotel lobby. He misses Hughie, the fleabag hotel's desk clerk who has just died. Michael Grandage will direct.
