M. Butterfly: Post-Modern Classic About Sex, Espionage & Imperialism
$35.00 - $65.00
$17.40 - $32.40*
Every bit as bold and engaging more than a quarter-century after its debut, David Henry Hwang's Tony Award-winning drama M. Butterfly remains one of the most celebrated and challenging American plays of the modern era. Based on the true story that stunned the world, it's the dramatic tale of Rene Gallimard, a former diplomat held captive by the French government, and his memories of a love affair with Song Liling, a beautiful Chinese opera diva whose true identity reveals shocking secrets. Skillfully intertwining the story of Puccini's opera Madame Butterfly with an extraordinary plot inspired by the Gallimard saga, M. Butterfly has become a post-modern classic whose intriguing and original exploration of dualities -- East and West, man and woman, reality and illusion -- continues to resonate today.

If you don't live in Hyde Park, getting supper can be a little bit of a problem because you have to get to the area through rush hour traffic, resulting in a short window of time to eat before the show. There's nothing much around the theatre, so you have to eat somewhere else, then drive to the theatre.An Iliad dining • Nov 21 2013 star this tip starred
