M. Butterfly: Post-Modern Classic About Sex, Espionage & Imperialism
$17.40 - $32.40*
$35.00 - $65.00
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.

There are some casual dining options close by - first is the Nile on 55th Street for Middle Eastern cuisine. Medici on 57th Street is a campus classic, but can be crowded at dinner time. There are also new options on 53rd Street - Promontory, A10 and Yusho, but these will require parking and then moving your car or a long walk - plan accordingly.star this tip starred
