Free Tickets to Hunter College Theater Department Live Performance

Hunter College Theater Department invites military, veterans, and families to its production of Eugene O'Neill's Hughie FREE of charge!

Eugene O’Neill’s one-act masterpiece HUGHIE is set in the early hours of the morning in the summer of 1928. The play takes place in the lobby of a seedy hotel in Manhattan.
