NEW YORK, Sept. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reintroducing the marriage of amazing hotels and great theater, Morgans Hotel Group is thrilled to announce its latest innovative collaboration between Hudson and PopNation, a merging of music, theater and nightlife. The show, produced by Anthony J. Cantalupo, will transform the multi-level Good Units space beneath Hudson, turning it into New York's newest entertainment destination.  

PopNation is a theatrical social event. Set in the 1990s, when iconic boy bands and pop princesses ruled the airwaves, PopNation is a fusion of original music, cutting-edge technology, world-class production and spectacular energy. PopNation is that thrilling moment when you listen to your favorite song and time stands still.

"Morgans Hotel Group is excited to welcome PopNation to Hudson. Our hotels are a platform for innovation and creativity and we believe PopNation is going to bring a tremendous amount of energy and excitement to the property," said Alan Philips, Chief Marketing Officer of Morgans Hotel Group.

"Morgans Hotel Group continues to be state-of-the-art in the world of lifestyle hospitality by bringing interactive theater into the hotel experience. Hudson's space is the perfect location to bring a new entertainment project to life, providing PopNation with the ultimate canvas and partner to launch its astonishing new show," Philips continued.  

"PopNation aspires to extend the form of musical theatre to something new. Our wish is for the show to transport audiences. My partners and I are ecstatic to call Hudson home and for the modern take on the hotel-theatre combination," said PopNation Producer Cantalupo.

Tickets will go on sale in October, with previews beginning in November 2014. Please visit PopNationNYC.com for additional information.
