Named by TIME as Best New American Play of 2011, David Henry Hwang’s Broadway hit Chinglish comes to Southern California. Daniel is an American businessman whose sign company is in trouble. But he has a great idea: score a fat contract in China, where signs for English-speaking tourists are mangled by hilarious mistranslations. Unfortunately, he forgets the most important rule: always bring your own translator because business deals involve much more than wining and dining. When Daniel falls in love with a beautiful bureaucrat, even feelings take on different meanings. The repartee is fast and funny in this acclaimed comedy that embraces both sides of the cultural divide.
