About

"David Henry Hwang's lively and provocative cultural self-portrait . . . Let's nobody off the hook." Ben Brantley, NEW YORK TIMES
"Charming, touching and funny . . . Yellow Face has an Ibsinite reach and stature." Michael Feingold, VILLAGE VOICE

Asian-American playwright David Henry Hwang, fresh off his Tony Award win for M. Butterfly, leads a protest against the casting of Jonathan Pryce as the Eurasian pimp in the original Broadway production of Miss Saigon, condemning the practice as "yellowface." His position soon comes back to haunt him when he mistakes a Caucasian actor, Marcus G. Dahlman, for mixed-race, and casts him in the lead Asian role of his own Broadway-bound comedy, Face Value.
