NOW PLAYING

M. BUTTERFLY

JAN 24 – FEB 17 2019

By David Henry Hwang Directed by Samip Raval

When we build fantasies to hide the truth, what happens when the walls come tumbling down? Clever parallels to the famous opera Madame Butterfly abound in this fearless play about a French diplomat who falls for a Chinese opera star – the ideal, exotic woman in his mind, but the truth is beyond his imagination. Hailed as a modern classic, M. Butterfly deftly skewers the perception of Eastern culture by the West and the persistent romanticism that clouds it.


Note: this production features nudity and graphic language.
