The Goodman Theatre has extended David Henry Hwang's Chinglish. Directed by Leigh Silverman, the production will now run through July 31.

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.

The company features James Waterston (Daniel), Stephen Pucci (Peter), Jennifer Lim (Xu Yan), Larry Zhang (Cai Guoliang), Christine Lin (Mrs. Zhao), Angela Lin (Miss Qian/Prosecutor Li), and Johnny Wu (Judge Xu Geming/ Bing).

The creative team includes David Korins (scenic design), Anita Yavich (costume design), Brian MacDevitt (lighting design), Darron West (sound design), and Jeff Sugg (projection design).

As previously reported, Silverman will also direct the play on Broadway this fall.

In related news, it has been announced that Silk Road Theatre Project's production of Hwang's Yellow Face, running at The Historic Chicago Temple Building, has also extended through July 31.
