'Chinglish' to seal on Broadway Jan. 29
"Chinglish," David Henry Hwang's play a great American businessman coping with translation and romantic problems in China, will close on Jan. 29, the producers introduced on Monday. The play, which formerly went at Chicago's Goodman Theatre, might have given 128 performances within the Longacre Theatre. Back Stage critic Erik Haagensen referred to as show a "smart and uproarious comedy" and designated Angela Lin who plays two supporting roles, as giving among his ten memorable NY theater performances of 2011. "Miracle/Bird," Eric Simonson's new play about basketball tales Earvin "Miracle" Manley and Ray Bird, will begin preview performances within the Longacre on March 21 just before an April 11 opening, producers introduced on Tuesday. Two other Broadway shows "Around the Apparent Day You Will See Forever" and "Relatively Speaking" may even close on Jan. 29.
