Welcome to The Works!


"With work this strong, it should only be a matter of time before others catch on to Hudson Theatre Works."

- Patrick Maley, The Star Ledger

Hello Friends,

First and foremost, we hope you and your families are healthy and safe!

In the midst of so much disruption and uncertainty, we are deeply grateful for the incredible community of artists, audiences and supporters who are part of Hudson Theatre Works' family -- whether you have been with us since we started or bought your first ticket to a Hudson Theatre Works show this season.

We are pushing back our PlayWorks readings, hopefully, to May.  And, unfortunately, we are canceling our spring show "Bunnies" until the fall of 2020.

Please check back for updates.  

In these coming weeks and months, we want to do everything we can to care of our community. Many of you have reached out to us regarding how you can help during these difficult times. If you are able to consider a donation to Hudson Theatre Works, that’s what we need most now.

We also want to find ways to continue to engage with you, and to inspire and stimulate and connect us all as we stay in our homes. We are huddling together (virtually!) to figure out ways to be of service to our artists and community during this time. One eternal element of making theatre is adaptability, and we are going to stay nimble and creative as we navigate this shifting terrain.

Thank you for being part of Hudson Theatre Works' family. We are profoundly heartened by the solidarity and creativity we have felt from our community.


Postponed until, hopefully, May!

Hudson Theatre Works is committed to a growing and adventurous community genuinely hungry for challenging performance.  We choose material that is aesthetically diverse and rooted in authenticity.  From highly theatrical world premieres to distilled re-imaginings of modern classics, we put the work first and embrace risk.

Our low-price tickets make it possible for everyone to experience first-rate live performances on a regular basis.  Our Affordable Ticket Initiative has helped us to share work we believe in with a growing, engaged community. 

We are proud members of the New Jersey Theatre Alliance. Our season is supported by Actor’s Equity, UBS Financial, Univest Foundation, Walmart, Hudson County Cultural Alliance, Mayor Richard Turner and the City of Weehawken, and the generosity of our audiences.

WHETHER IT'S $10 OR $1,000. 

Hudson Theatre Works is committed to ensemble collaboration as well as artistic risk through its work with its permanent company, guest artists, partner institutions and the surrounding community.  It is dedicated to a rugged aesthetic which seeks to tell stories, both new and old, classic and contemporary, that reflect our lives, relationships and world today.  Hudson Theatre Works’ primary focus is in bringing a living theatre community to the area of  North Jersey through performance, outreach and theatre arts instruction.

This program is made possible by a grant from the NJ State Council on the Arts, a division of the Department of State, and administered by the Hudson County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs, Thomas A. DeGise, County Executive & the Hudson County Board of Chosen Freeholders.  We'd also like to thank Weehawken Mayor Richard Turner, Town Manager, Gio Ahmad, and the Weehawken town council.

Hudson Theatre Works offers all people equal access to participate in its programs and attend its shows.  If you require special assistance or assistive technology, please contact us directly at 201-401-3337 at your earliest convenience.

Hudson Theatre Works is a 501(c)3 non-profit arts organization. Donations are tax-deductible up to the amount allowed by law
