About Chinglish - On Broadway

Show Info

Summary

In Hwang's hilarious Chinglish, the Chinese tiger roars, American business trembles” – The Chicago Tribune Chinglish is the new “shrewd, timely and razor-sharp comedy” (The Chicago Tribune) by Tony Award winner and Pulitzer Prize finalist David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly) about the challenges of doing business in a culture whose language—and ways of communicating—are worlds apart from our own.

Chinglish makes its Broadway premiere direct after playing at Chicago’s Goodman Theatre where The Tribune also gave it 4 stars.

In this sexy and romantic play, an American businessman arrives in a bustling Chinese province looking to score a lucrative contact for his family’s sign-making firm. He soon finds that the complexities of such a venture far outstrip the expected differences in language, customs and manners – and calls into questions even the most basic assumptions of human conduct.

Chinglish will be performed in both English and Mandarin (with English surtitles).

Running Time: 2 hours, including one intermission
