Personal Quote:

The film world is very different now than it was 10 or 20 years ago. Big studios rarely invest nowadays in "artistic" pictures, which are likely to be made from plays. So a play will probably become an indie movie, which is more like doing an Off-Broadway show -- less money, but more artistic control. I'll see how my process with "Chinglish" works out before offering any advice. See more »

Trivia:

He was awarded the 2006-2007 OBIE Award for Playwriting for "Yellow Face" at the Public Theater in New York City. See more »
