“…a lively, likable show! Playwright Lauren Yee gleefully highlights the assimilated life of the Wongs, who defy the stereotype of the hard driving Chinese-American family. It’s clever and her insights are astute!”
- Ken Jaworowski, April 1, 2010

“…a wildly inventive, raucously funny ride. Though rooted in Asian American literary tradition, this play upends its conventions with inspired irreverence, aided by brilliant staging and a powerhouse ensemble. You have not seen anything like this before. The fourth wave of Asian American playwriting has arrived!”
-David Henry Hwang, March 24, 2010


“Head to Pan Asian Rep to see these extraordinary actors at the top of their game” in a “comedy that has been mounted with affection and high sprits!”
-Martin Denton, March 23, 2010


“a smart, fast-paced comedy that wrings laughs from the topics of cultural identity and assimilation. Neither predictable nor politically correct, it’s a satirical cartoon that has heart and even occasional poignancy”
-Patrick Lee, March 25, 2010


"Yee’s characters have a substantial basis in camp, but Pan Asian Rep’s production amps up the comedy…CHING CHONG CHINAMAN shines in its countless bit parts and joking asides…"
-Nicole Villeneuve, March 24, 2010
