A bit difficult. Go a little early and circle around Franklin or Post St.

Not problem if you are looking on Franklin about half an hour before showtime.

This was a wonderful production. The staging was imaginative, the acting superb, and my attention was riveted every minute. One of the best small theater productions I've ever seen.

I've seen this on Broadway and prefer this intimate version. In addition, I was impressed with both the acting and staging. And, of course, the script is just wonderful.... continued

Description

Custom Made presents a dynamic new staging of David Henery Hwang’s modern classic.

A French diplomat carried on a twenty-year affair with a Chinese actor and opera singer, not realizing that his partner was a man masquerading as a woman. From these basic facts comes a sensational drama that wonders how such a fantasy can take hold, and what illusions exist between men and women, as well as between East and West.

Interwoven with the Puccini opera, “M. Butterfly” is a timeless, and highly theatrical, story of love and betrayal.

Directed by Stuart Bousel *

*Starring: Xanadu Bruggers, Sean Fenton, Rik Lopes, Kai Morrison, Karen Offereins, Kira Shaw and Paul Stout
