Casting himself as the protagonist, Hwang recounts his (maybe true, maybe not) hard-hitting attempts to protest yellow face casting in Miss Saigon on Broadway–-and his own accidental casting of a white man as Asian. Mixing real events, real headlines and real people with fictional characters and dramatic license, YELLOW FACE explores and pokes fun at the role of race in modern American society, media, politics and theatre.
The play is directed by David Hsieh and stars Julia Beers, Jeremy Behrens, Stephanie Kim, Agastya Kohli, Lee Osorio, Henry Vu and Moses Yim. Special props go to my old friend Maggie Lee, who is doing lighting for this show.

By the way, David Henry Hwang will be in Seattle to attend the 8:00pm, August 13 performance of Yellow Face, and will participate in a talkback session after the play. See the man, the Hwang himself, in the flesh.
