NEW YORK (AP) - David Henry Hwang’s new play “Chinglish” about a clash of cultures is coming to the Crossroads of the World.

The play about an American businessman’s difficulties trying to expand into China will make its Broadway premiere this fall at a theater to be announced later.

“Chinglish” is currently running at Chicago’s Goodman Theatre.

Leigh Silverman, who directed Lisa Kron’s “Well” on Broadway, will return to direct the Broadway production.

Hwang’s plays include “M. Butterfly,” which won the 1988 Tony Award, “Golden Child,” “Yellow Face” and “FOB.”

He also wrote the books for the Disney musicals “Aida” and “Tarzan,” the script for the film “Possession,” and reworked Rogers and Hammerstein’s “Flower Drum Song.”
