HUGHIE

True, the human barnacles that clung to the edges of the New York underworld in 1928 rarely used terms like "existential crisis." Still, that's what Erie Smith is having, now that Hughie, a nondescript night clerk at a third-rate midtown residential establishment, is dead. In their all-night gab fests, Smith had been able to paint himself as a ladies' man, a high roller, and a wise-guy confidant. Now that mirror's gone, as Erie briefs the new guy at the front desk about the man he replaced in Eugene O'Neill's atmospheric, two-person, one-act drama. In a rare bit of stunt casting, actors Brook North and David Klionsky trade roles nightly in this South Stream production. —Byron Woods
