David Henry Hwang
Few writers have turned issues around ethnicity and identity into a widely acclaimed and award-winning career like David Henry Hwang. This Chinese-American playwright is best known as the author of M. Butterfly. That enduring 1988 work, which won a Tony Award, Drama Desk Award, John Gassner Award, and Outer Critics Circle Award, was also a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Other plays include Obie Award winners, FOB and Golden Child, as well as Yellow Face which earned Hwang yet another Obie Award and Pulitzer Prize nomination. His play, Ch'inglish—the text that BABEL audiences will be focusing on—was named the Best New American Play of 2011 by TIME Magazine. Over his 30+ year career, Hwang has collaborated with Prince, Elton John and Tim Rice, Phil Collins, Philip Glass, and Aimee Mann, earning him numerous Tony Awards and two Grammy Awards.
