David Henry Hwang talks about “The Dance and the Railroad,” presented by Signature Theatre Company. On a California mountaintop in 1867 near the Transcontinental Railroad, two Chinese workers struggle through poverty and hunger to reconnect with the traditions of their homeland. “The Dance and the Railroad” follows the twice-extended “Golden Child” as the second production in the Residency One: David Henry Hwang Series. It’s playing at the Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center.
