Photo Coverage: CHINGLISH Opens on Broadway!

Last night, October 27, CHINGLISH opened at the Longacre Theatre, making its Broadway premiere following its world premiere production at Goodman Theatre in Chicago this summer. The show began performances on October 11.  BroadwayWorld was on hand for the celebratory opening and brings you photo coverage below!

CHINGLISH is a new comedy about 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.

"The U.S. and China are at a critical moment in history-each nation is deeply interested in, but knows very little about, the other," said playwright David Henry Hwang. "CHINGLISH was born from the many visits I've made to China over the past five or six years to witness the exciting changes there. During one visit, I toured a new arts center where everything was first-rate-except for the ridiculously translatEd English signs. It was at that moment that I thought of writing this play."
