Last chance for you to see Chinglish.
Chinglish, the very funny and very timely play by David Henry Hwang that I produced on Broadway this Fall, is closing up shop this Sunday, January 29th. And yep, it’s closing earlier than we had all hoped.
And you should go see it before it does.
Why? Because it’s a very good play (Time Magazine named it the Best American Play of the Year.)
But also because it is that very rare thing . . . a new American play . . . and my co-producers and I tried hard to buck a trend and put it up without stars. (Although I guarantee you’ll leave the Longacre saying that Jennifer Lim deserves her own constellation after seeing the performance.)
Unfortunately, in this Fall’s star-packed season, that may be one of the reasons we couldn’t quite attract enough of an audience to make it to the Spring.
But we tried.
And that’s something that I’m very proud of, and thankful to all my investors for, and I know they are proud of too.
Because we produced a great play, and we did it the way we wanted to. And no matter how disappointing our abbreviated run may be . . . I’ll always be able to sleep at night knowing that.

I do two things whenever I buy anything. I record…
Like most TheaterMakers, I got started in “the biz” early…
