Production photo from She Stoops to Conquer: (Off-Broadway) Pearl Theatre

Author: Oliver Goldsmith
Production Conceived and Directed by: Chuck Hudson

Received a Joe A. Callaway Award from the Actors Equity Association.

Chuck Hudson, the director, keeps his able cast in almost constant motion on the stage, even through the scene changes. The pace and timing of the performances, essential for farce, is sharp throughout, from pauses to double-takes, and Mr. Hudson patiently lets the humor build on its own rather than trying to rush the laughs with stage business or mugging. Wilborn Hampton, The New York Times

Pick of the week: The Pearl Theatre Company’s revival of Oliver Goldsmith classic… is a delight from start to finish…Under the lively, very physical direction of Chuck Hudson, the Pearl’s ensemble sparkles and shines in this witty, merry production…prepare to sit back, relax, and laugh a lot. Martin Denton, NYCTheatre.com

Chuck Hudson directs with confidence…It is a tribute to Mr. Hudson and this company that nobody lags behind. David Lohrey, CurtainUp
