CHINGLISH Reaches 100th Broadway Performance
CHINGLISH, the new comedy, which was recently named by TIME Magazine, Bloomberg Radio, NY1 and WNYC as one of the Top 10 Broadway shows of the year, reaches its 100th performance tonight at 7 PM.
CHINGLISH, by Tony Award-winning and two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), is playing at the Longacre Theatre (220 West 48th Street). Tickets are available on Telecharge.com or by calling 212-239-6200.
The CHINGLISH cast features Jennifer Lim, Gary Wilmes, Angela Lin, Christine Lin, Stephen Pucci, Johnny Wu and Larry Lei Zhang. The play is directed by Leigh Silverman, who directed Lisa Kron's Well on Broadway and won a 2011 OBIE for directing both Go Back To Where You Are and In The Wake.
CHINGLISH is the new comedy about the misadventures of miscommunication. It is the story of an American businessman desperate to launch a new enterprise in China. There are only three things standing in his way: He can't speak the language. He can't learn the customs. And he's falling in love with the one woman he absolutely can't have.
