Portland Center Stage: Chinglish, through February 9
A smart comedy of cross-cultural missteps.
In Chinglish, an American businessman heads to Asia to score a lucrative contract for his family’s firm—but the deal isn’t the only thing getting lost in translation when he collides with a Communist minister, a bumbling consultant and a suspiciously sexy bureaucrat. The perils and fraught pleasures of Chinese-American business transactions become fascinating—and hilarious—drivers of this new comedy by Hwang, award-winning playwright of M. Butterfly and Golden Child. Call 503-445-3700 for dates, times and ticket information.
