Quiara Alegría Hudes is a writer, strong wife and mother of two, barrio feminist and native of West Philly, U.S.A.
Hailed for her work’s exuberance, intellectual rigor, and rich imagination, her plays and musicals have been performed around the world. They include "Water By the Spoonful," winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama; "In the Heights," winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and Pulitzer finalist; and "Elliot, A Soldier’s Fugue," another Pulitzer finalist. Her most recent musical, "Miss You Like Hell," appeared Off-Broadway at New York’s Public Theater. Hudes wrote the screenplay adaptation for "In the Heights" which released in movie theaters Summer 2020. In 2021, her memoir, "My Broken Language," was published.
Originally trained as a composer, Hudes writes at the intersection of music and drama. She has collaborated with renowned musicians including Nelson Gonzalez, Michel Camilo, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Erin McKeown, and The Cleveland Orchestra. Hudes founded Emancipated Stories. It seeks to put a personal face on mass incarceration by having inmates share one page of their life story with the world.
After graduating from public school in Philadelphia, Hudes went on to receive a B.A. in music from Yale University and an M.F.A. in playwriting from Brown, where she studied with Paula Vogel. She was recently inducted into the Central High School Hall of Fame--in the first round of women to receive this honor since the school's founding in 1836.
Hudes is on the board of Philadelphia Young Playwrights, which produced her first play in the tenth grade. She now lives in New York with her husband and children.
