THEATRE ON THE EDGE

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

The Hudson Theatre Works Virtual Festival kicked off earlier this month, and, so far, there’s no end in sight. Founded in 2012, Hudson Theatre Works is a Weehawken-based, nonprofit Equity theatrer committed to nurturing new voices. Their Virtual Festival is currently presenting readings of new short plays by contemporary playwrights, giving them and the actors involved an opportunity to share their work during the COVID-19 pandemic. We recently spoke with Artistic Director Frank Licato, Associate Artistic Director Adrian Wattenmaker, and Hudson Theatre Works Resident Playwright Joanne Hoersch about finding a way to keep theatre alive while we’re all being kept apart by the coronavirus.

Hudson Theatre Works is committed to an 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 and seeks to tell stories, both old and new, classic and contemporary, dramatic and comic, which reflect our lives, relationships and the world today.  

Hudson Theatre Works’ primary focus is in bringing a living theatre community to the area of Hudson County and New Jersey through performance, outreach and theatre arts education. 

We are committed to low tickets prices so that everyone in our community can attend our shows.  We are proud to be known, as a theatre the critics called us, "Off-Broadway quality at affordable prices."  We are happy to provide theatergoers, both frequent and new, with affordable access to the performing arts.  This initiative has made it possible for audiences to enjoy and share the transformative experience of high-quality theatre 

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.
