As a member of New York's Circle Repertory Company, Hutton originated the lead role in the Broadway Production of Craig Lucas' Prelude to a Kiss and starred in Babylon Gardens with Mary Louise Parker.

These highly acclaimed films premiered in Spring 2001 on A&E, with a repertoire of actors who co-star with Hutton and Maury Chaykin, and ran for two years.

Working behind the camera, Hutton has directed a number of music videos, including Drive by the Cars, Not Enough Love by Don Henley, the Neil Young Concert Film Freedom, as well as an episode of Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories entitled Grandpa's Ghost, from a story he wrote.
