More About the Author

David Henry Hwang is a playwright, screenwriter and librettist for musicals and operas. He is a Tony Award winner and three-time nominee, a three-time Obie Award winner, and a two-time Nominated Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Drama. His plays include M. BUTTERFLY, CHINGLISH, GOLDEN CHILD, YELLOW FACE, THE DANCE AND THE RAILROAD and FOB. He wrote the script (or "book") for the Broadway musicals Elton John and Tim Rice's AIDA (co-author), which ran almost five years on Broadway, the revised FLOWER DRUM SONG, and DISNEY's TARZAN, with songs by Phil Collins. As America's most-produced living opera librettist, his works include four pieces with composer Philip Glass, as well as AINADAMAR (Osvaldo Golijov - winner of two 2007 Grammy Awards), THE SILVER RIVER (Bright Sheng) and ALICE IN WONDERLAND (Unsuk Chin). His first play, FOB, premiered in his lounge of his dormitory at Stanford University. Hwang penned the feature films M.

Recently, he won the 2011 PEN/Laura Pels Award for a Master American Dramatist, the 2012 Inge Award for Distinguished Achievement in the American Theatre, and the 2012 Steinberg Distinguished Playwright Award. He is currently the Residency One Playwright at New York's Signature Theatre, which is producing a season of his plays in 2012-13, including the premiere of his newest work, KUNG FU, inspired by the life of Bruce Lee. He lives in Brooklyn, New York, with his wife, actress Kathryn Layng, and their children.

As an African living in America reading Yellow Face proves the commonalities different races encounter which emphasizes on discrimination not only Asians can relate to but other nationalities.

Please do not read this review because you will learn what the whole book is about.

This book is a 2-4 hour read. It is about David Henry Hwang's issue with casting a non-Asian actor to play an Asian actor. The irony is, he casted a pure Caucasian male to play the male lead of an Asian character. He does not figure this out until the end of the play, which makes this play "funny". Because, the actor played along with Hwang's assumption and pretended that he was of Asian decent. That is basically the whole story. Well, I am sure there were other things he mentioned, but I do not want to write a book analysis review.

The story is silly. I can't imagine that Hwang would merely write such a kind of low level play. His talent is running out.
