He is the only actor to be honored with the Tony Award, Drama Desk Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, Clarence Derwent Award, and Theater World Award for the same performance. He starred in the television series "All-American Girl" (1994), and has made guest appearances on "Sesame Street" (1969) and "The X Files" (1993). He was on the off-Broadway musical revival of "As Thousands Cheer." and followed with a critically acclaimed performance as Linus in the revival of "You're a Good Man Charlie Brown," returned to SVU, and is now starring in the revival of Sondheim's "Pacific Overtures".

  • He and his partner welcomed their son, Jackson Foo Wong, on 28 May, 2000.

  • Nominated for the 1989 Helen Hayes Award for his work in "M. Butterfly" (Outstanding Lead Actor, Non-Resident Production).
  • Chose to go by his initials while playing his breakthrough role, M. Butterfly. The title character's gender is ambiguous, and he decided that using his initials instead of his full name would make it difficult to guess whether he was a man or a woman, thus adding to the androgyny of the character he was playing.
  • His was one the morphed faces in the Michael Jackson "Black or White" video.
