Associate Director. City Hall is demanding more than his signature, the landlord wants him out, the liquor store is closed — and the Church won’t leave him alone. For ex-cop and recent widower Walter “Pops” Washington and his recently paroled son Junior, the struggle to hold on to one of the last great rent stabilized apartments on Riverside Drive collides with old wounds, sketchy new houseguests, and a final ultimatum in this Pulitzer Prize-winning dark comedy from Stephen Adly Guirgis. For Pops and Junior, it seems the old days are dead and gone — after a lifetime living Between Riverside and Crazy.

Producer. Remember the good old days of radio—when people had to use their imaginations—when the mind was a stage? Those days are back—only better! Andrew J. Fenady has written two of his award-winning productions as RADIO PLAYS where you can SEE as well as HEAR radio programs. The movie of the week starred Richard Thomas, Katharine Isobel, Charles Bronson and Ed Asner. A young girl writes a letter to the editor of the New York Sun. "Dear Editor, I am eight years old. Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus. Papa says if you see it in the Sun, it's so. Please tell me the truth. Is there a Santa Claus?" Ed Mitchell, the editor, assigns Frank Church—a reporter on the verge of self destruction—the task of answering Virginia's question. Church's quest and reply have become one of the world's most quoted and beloved editorials.
Producer. A workshop of James Georgiades' solo show Always On Sunday was staged in 2019 at Hudson Theatre Works. A rewrite was presented as a reading in February 2020.

Producer. Elliot & Me is a musical comedy based on the lives of songwriter Elliot Willensky and his younger brother Steven. Elliot and Steven both reflect on the volatile ups and downs of their shared experiences: from their raucous “wonder years” growing up in Bayonne, NJ; to the painful conflict when Elliot defies the expectations of his traditional middle-class Jewish family and drops out of medical school to write pop songs; to Elliot’s rise to stardom writing hits for Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston and Steven’s starry-eyed admiration for his Hollywood lifestyle; and eventually to their role reversals when Elliot’s career hits a few bumps in the road and he needs to rely on Steven for help. Elliot & Me is filled with humor, colorful personalities, unexpected situations, and uplifting musical moments. hudsontheatreworks.org

Director. Tales from Sam Shepard's Cruising Paradise. A reading of rarely heard pieces by one of America's most important writers.
Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, actor, ex-cowboy, and musician Sam Shepard now stands revealed as a storyteller of dazzling artistry. Bleak and wildly funny, touching but stringently unsentimental, these stories give readers a most intimate view of the writer who has become synonymous with the landscape of America. Some of these pieces are beautifully constructed, fully realized short stories, while others are short bursts of dialogue, meditations, diary entries, letters, monologues, phone calls and plaints. Still others seem like myth and lore gleaned from old texts or barrooms. All are strong voice pieces--no surprise from a major playwright.

Role of the Night Clerk. In one of Eugene O'Neill's last works, high-rolling gambler Erie and Hughie, the credulous night clerk at a single-occupancy hotel, were confidants. Hughie admired Erie for his bold lifestyle and Erie considered Hughie his good luck charm. When Hughie dies unexpectedly, Erie's luck changes for the worse and he finds himself in dire straits.
Hudson Theatre Works mounts an ambitious and fulfilling Eugene O’Neill Festival. Both shows succeed beyond expectations. The two men in “Hughie,” command and embody their roles to near perfection. -Jim Testa, NJ Arts
Weehawken's Hudson Theatre Works captures the essence of O’Neill’s late little gem with impressive precision... In some ways, the night clerk in “Hughie” must be the most boring role for an actor in all of American theater. Stand there and listen. Interject a few observations ever now and then. But there is more here, a substance that Wattenmaker locates and allows to emerge. It is no mean feat to find the room necessary to allow this character to evolve, but Wattenmaker’s night clerk does so skillfully. - Patrick Maley, Star Ledger
