By Krissie Fullerton
Drama Desk Award nominee Jennifer Lim of Broadway's Chinglish, Julyana Soelistyo of Off-Broadway's The Glorious Ones are among cast members of the new Off-Broadway production of David Henry Hwang's Golden Child, part of Signature Theatre Company's 2012-13 Hwang residency.
Leigh Silverman directs a cast that includes Tina Chilip (Leviathan Lab's Twelfth Night) as Servant/Ghost; Nadia Gan (Mirror Rep's The Shanghai Gesture) as Servant/Ghost; Lesley Hu (Off-Broadway debut) as Eng Eling, Third Wife; Lim as Eng Luan, Second Wife; Matthew Maher (CSC's The School for Lies) as Reverend Baines; Annie Q ("Are We There Yet?") as Eng Ahn/Daughter; Tony Award nominee Julyana Soelistyo (original Broadway cast of Golden Child) as Eng Siu-Young, First Wife; and Greg Watanabe (MyNetworkTV's "Watch Over Me") as Grandson/Eng Tieng-Bin.
The drama concerns a Chinese businessman who returns home after working abroad and "sets off a dangerous power struggle in his polygamous Chinese household," according to Signature. "Inspired by his own family history, David Henry Hwang's 1997 Obie Award-winning and 1998 Tony nominated Golden Child explores the often-painful process through which change comes to people and cultures."
