David Henry Hwang's Chinglish will have its New York premiere on Broadway this fall. Leigh Silverman, who has helmed the play at Chicago's Goodman Theatre, will once again direct.

The work concerns an American businessman who travels to China hoping to make an important deal and finds himself enmeshed in a system more complex than he ever imagined. Casting for the Broadway show will be announced soon.

The design team will include David Korins (set), Anita Yavich (costumes) and Brian MacDevitt (lighting).

Hwang's many other plays include M. Butterfly, Golden Child, Yellow Face, and FOB.

The Chicago production of Chinglish continues at the Goodman Theatre through July 24.
