M. Butterfly Reviews

A play that remains urgently relevant.
New York Times
Gripping M. BUTTERFLY soars anew with Clive Owen!
Entertainment Qwwkly
Bristling with racial and gender politics, M. BUTTERFLY is a tragicomedy about the nexus of arrogance and delusion – and how easy deception can be when all it takes is flattery.
New York Times

Summary

David Henry Hwang’s modern classic, M. BUTTERFLY charts the scandalous romance between a married French diplomat and a mysterious Chinese opera singer – a remarkable love story of international espionage and personal betrayal. Their 20-year relationship pushed and blurred the boundaries between male and female, east and west – while redefining the nature of love and the devastating cost of deceit.

For the Tony Award®-winning play’s first Broadway return, Hwang will introduce new material inspired by the real-life love affair between French diplomat Bernard Boursicot and Chinese opera singer Shi Pei Pu that has come to light since the play’s 1988 premiere.
