Goodman speaks ‘Chinglish’

Hwang play to premiere in Chicago

A new play by David Henry Hwang, “Chinglish,” will finish off the 2010-11 season at Chicago’s Goodman Theater.

Show is produced in association with Off Broadway’s Public Theater — which makes the play seem like a sure bet for the Public’s 2011-12 season, although no plans have been confirmed.

“Chinglish” centers on a U.S. businessman struggling to navigate cultural differences when he travels to China to make a deal. Leigh Silverman (“Coraline,” “The Wake”) directs.

Hwang’s recent play “Yellow Face” was seen at the Public as part of the 2007-08 season, in a production also helmed by Silverman.

“Chinglish” will begin perfs at the Goodman in June 2011, with exact dates to be determined. The company’s 2010-11 lineup also includes world preems by Sarah Ruhl, Thomas Bradshaw and Regina Taylor.
