Forest Whitaker flashes a smile alongside Joshua Jackson while attending Harvey Weinstein’s A Celebration For Forest Whitaker In Eugene O’Neill’s Hughie held at Elyx House on Thursday (February 18) in New York City.
The two actors were joined at the event by Emmy Rossum, Carla Gugino, Sting and his wife Trudie Styler, Gayle King, American Crime Story‘s Billy Magnussen, Judah Friedlande, and Russell Simmons.
Hughie, which is Forest‘s Broadway debut, is set in the lobby of a small midtown hotel on the West Side of Manhattan. Forest plays Erie Smith, a drunken, small time hustler who is mourning the recent death of the hotel’s night clerk, Hughie. Erie regales the new night clerk (Frank Wood) with tall-tales of his glory days and times spent with Hughie.
Be sure to check Hughie out when it opens on February 25 at the Booth Theatre!
