About the Show

Tony Award® winner and three-time Pulitzer finalist David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly) will make his Roundabout debut with the Broadway premiere of YELLOW FACE, his hilarious is-he-or-isn’t-he comedy of identity, show business, and (perhaps) autobiography. Starring Daniel Dae Kim (Lost) and directed by Tony nominee Leigh Silverman (Violet).

Inspired by real events, the playwright’s fictionalized doppelgänger protests yellowface casting in Miss Saigon, only to mistakenly cast a white actor as the Asian lead in his own play. This Obie Award-winning and Pulitzer finalist play is a laugh-out-loud farce about the complexities of race.

About the Theatre

Todd Haimes Theatre

227 W 42nd St
New York, NY 10036

Originally named The Selwyn Theatre, The American Airlines Theatre was built in 1918 by producers of the same name. In the 1930s it was converted to a movie house after suffering hard times due to the Great Depression.

The venue was purchased by the Roundabout Theatre Company in the late 1990s. It was extensively renovated and opened as The American Airlines theatre in 2000.

In June 2023, Roundabout announced they would rename the theatre the Todd Haimes Theatre who worked to grow Roundabout for 40 years.
