Actor BD Wong is a familiar face on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," and came to prominence with his award-winning Broadway debut in "M. Butterfly." A San Francisco native, he joins us to talk about his current role in a modern adaptation of the 13th-century play "The Orphan of Zhao" at the American Conservatory Theater. In the play, a country doctor faces the heartbreaking choice of whether to save the emperor's grandson or sacrifice his own child.
