NEW YORK (AP) — Frank Wood will join Forest Whitaker this winter on Broadway in a revival of Eugene O'Neill's "Hughie."

Wood, a Tony Award-winner whose stage credits includes "Side Man," ''Angels In America" and "Clybourne Park," joins the production directed by Michael Grandage. Previews begin in February at the Booth Theatre.

Whitaker will play Erie, a small time hustler who tells his tale to a sympathetic night clerk in a rundown hotel lobby. He misses Hughie, the fleabag hotel's previous desk clerk who has just died. Wood will play the new clerk.
