Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Charming, touching and funny…Yellow Face has an Ibsenite reach and stature.” –Michael Feingold, Village Voice

“Though inevitably labeled an Asian American writer, Hwang has actually been among the quintessential American playwrights, period, of his time. In his work, ethnic, racial and sexual identities are fluid, and the cultures that stir within the American melting pot alternately do battle and cross-pollinate…Yellow Face is a particularly remarkable achievement, a Pirandellian comedy built around a trio of sour real-life event…all the more powerful for grasping the absurdity of these events and refracting them through this writer’s piquant comic vision.” –Frank Rich, foreword to Yellow Face

Yellow Face never once descends into the valley of self-indulgence. Hwang’s dialogue shows perspective that’s global rather than solipsistic…Yellow Face isn’t just a technically well-made play; it’s also wholly entertaining.” –Catey Sullivan, Chicago Theatre Beat
