About Yellow Face on Broadway

Get Yellow Face tickets and see TV star Daniel Dae Kim in an uproarious satire about race, show business, and the impossibility of telling every story, even your own, perfectly. After acclaimed productions all over the world, Tony Award winner David Henry Hwang’s masterful comedy finally bows on Broadway, directed by Suffs Tony Award nominee Leigh Silverman.

Experience the Pulitzer Prize finalist Yellow Face in New York and see the star of Lost, Angel, Raya and the Last Dragon, and more as “DHH.” DHH, as in David Henry Hwang? That’s right: in this comedic memoir of a play, Kim steps into the gently fictionalized shoes of Hwang to share the story of him mistakenly casting a white actor in his play…to play an Asian character. See Yellow Face on Broadway and get tickets when they go on sale.

More information about Yellow Face on Broadway

A commercial failure losing millions of dollars. Miss Saigon. Jane Krakowski? All of these seemingly disparate ingredients collide, to great hilarious effect, in David Henry Hwang’s Obie Award-winning comedy. After years of playing around the country (and in Hong Kong and Sydney), Yellow Face, which grows timelier with each production, finally comes to Broadway.

Yellow Face follows DHH (played by Daniel Dae Kim) as he relives his failed Broadway play Face Value, directed by Jerry Zaks, and the protests for yellow-face casting in Miss Saigon…only to mistakenly cast a white actor as the Asian lead in his own play. A farcical look at the complexities of race and identity in the American theatre, Yellow Face is a cutting and humorous portrait of how we try (and sometimes fail) to tell our own stories. Digging into father-son relationships and Chinese assimilation in America, Yellow Face slyly navigates multiple terrains with great wit, affection, and theatricality.

What to watch for

  • One of America’s most acclaimed playwrights, David Henry Hwang is the first Asian-American playwright to win a Tony Award for Best Play for M. Butterfly. He is also a three-time Pulitzer Prize finalist.
  • Daniel Dae Kim is known for his screen work, but this won’t be his first time on Broadway: he played the King of Siam in the recent Lincoln Center revival of The King and I.
  • Leigh Silverman is an acclaimed director and two-time Tony Award nominee for Violet and Suffs. She’s also directed plays on Broadway, including Grand Horizons and The Lifespan of a Fact.
  • Hwang’s Broadway failure Face Value lost $2 million and closed during previews on Broadway in 1993. This epic loss in the playwright’s professional life inspired Yellow Face, a much more successful hit.
