M. Butterfly Summary

Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe Award winner Clive Owen will star as Rene Gallimard in the first Broadway revival of David Henry Hwang’s Tony Award®-winning play, M. Butterfly, directed by Tony Award® winner Julie Taymor.

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.

The original production of M. Butterfly, directed by John Dexter, ran on Broadway from March 20, 1988 through January 27, 1990 for a total of 777 performances, and won the Tony Award for Best Play. The play had its world premiere at Washington DC’s National Theatre in February 1988. After its Broadway engagement, M. Butterfly had a hugely successful North American tour.
