Direct from its sold-out run at Chicago's Goodman Theatre, CHINGLISH now comes to Broadway!



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 question even the most basic assumptions of human conduct.



CHINGLISH will be performed in both English and Mandarin (with English subtitles).

Ever hear the one about the handicapped restroom at a Chinese tourist attraction that was labeled for English-speaking visitors, 'Deformed Man's Toilet'?  Or the one about the American trying to seduce his new Chinese love in her native language with the romantic words, 'Frog loves to pee'?  Such miscommunications serve as the inspiration for David Henry Hwang's hip, sexy and very funny comedy of cultural awkwardness, Chinglish.
