On Broadway, Hudes penned the book for the Tony Award Winning Best Musical In the Heights. Her plays include Water by the Spoonful, Elliot A Soldier’s Fugue, The Happiest Song Plays Last, and the upcoming Daphne’s Dive. They have been produced around the globe and translated into Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, and German. Amongst her social advocacy work, her favorite is mentoring at Philadelphia Young Playwrights since they produced her first play in the tenth grade.
