Excellent production by Theatreworks. It is a fast-moving, ambitious play to attempt. The production was not without its difficulties -- mostly in the writing, which need to be worked out. The tempo and the character switches were cleverly staged and wonderfully executed. Highly recommended.
A revealing backstage comedy from the Tony Award-winning author of M Butterfly, this ferociously funny, utterly unreliable memoir chronicles David Henry Hwang’s struggle to define racial identity in the mixed-up melting pot of contemporary America. Part fact, part fiction, provocative yet full of heart, this Obie Award winner is a tale of cultural politics, family fortunes, and artistic integrity, an insightful look at the pitfalls and promise of our “P.C.” world. Broadway star Francis Jue recreates his award-winning performance. (Contains mature language.)
