David Hugo

Assistant Professor of Musical Theatre Director of Musical Theatre

B.F.A. Syracuse University M.A. LIU Post


David Hugo has been a professor in the Theatre Department at LIU Post since 2007. He teaches freshman acting and all the musical theater acting courses.  David has performed regionally, on national tours and on Broadway in shows such as Jekyll and Hyde, Iolanthe, Into the Woods, and a stellar 12-year career with Les Miserables where he portrayed Grantaire in the final Broadway cast.


He was on tour with the Broadway production of Les Miserables when he developed a love for teaching through the workshops he gave at high schools and universities across America, Asia and Canada. He left the Les Miserables tour in 2005 to pursue a master’s degree in theater. His introduction to the Suzuki method while pursing his masters degree changed the course of his career. He found the Suzuki method to be an excellent technique for teaching musical theatre, and he was able to devise a way to integrate it into his musical theatre curriculum. 


David holds an M.A. in Theatre from LIU CW Post, a B.F.A. in acting from Syracuse University and an Associates Degree in Music from Onondaga Community College.
