This Chinese American playwright, described by the New York Times as "a true original" and by Time Magazine as "the first important dramatist of American public life since Arthur Miller," is best known as the author of M. Butterfly. That enduring 1988 work, which won a Tony Award, Drama Desk Award, John Gassner Award, and Outer Critics Circle Award, was also a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. According to Opera News, Hwang is America’s most produced living opera librettist.
