Named one of Time magazine's 10 best plays of 2011, Chinglish is the latest theatrical work by David Henry Hwang, the Tony and Obie Award-winning writer of M. Butterfly. This culture-clash comedy of mistranslation and manners tells the comedic story of a Midwestern American businessman who's trying to conduct an important deal in a bustling Chinese province. He soon learns just how much he doesn't comprehend: his translators are unreliable, his consultant may be a fraud, and he is captivated by Xu, a beautiful, seemingly supportive government official whom he has trouble understanding.

Very funny. Took my grandchildren. At first I thought it might be too dry, but there was plenty of slapstick that kept the adults laughing along with the kids. Money well spent! Parking on the weekends are a problem but I understand that there's a free parking structure to the south east of the theatre.
