Chinglish
Portland Center Stage/Syracuse Stage

The American theatre provides limited opportunity for its Asian American actors, but this lack is amplified by the unique strength of a performance like Tina Chilip’s as vice-minister Xi Yan. She gives life to a feminine culture mostly unknown to the American audience.  – Marisa Carusa, NY Theater Guide

 

Tina Chilip’s Xi Yan is the Asian equivalent of a Hitchcock blonde: beauty fused with malevolence- James MacKillop, Syracuse New Times

 

The toughest, fiercest, and most complex personality is the minister’s second in command, Xi Yan (an alternately icy and feisty Tina Chilip). - Barbara Adams, Ithaca.com
