M. Butterfly is a Tony Award-Winning stage play that paints the controversial love affair of French Diplomat René Gallimard and Chinese Opera Singer Song Liling. It is loosely based on a true story that took place in the 1980s. Both entertaining and thought provoking, this tale’s latest revival starring Olivier Borten (as Gallimard) and RS Francisco (as Liling) certainly took Manila by storm and rose to critical acclaim – garnering a total of 6 Aliw Awards nominations for the production.
Following the recent success of their Manila run at the Maybank Performing Arts Theater, David Henry Hwang’s timeless Broadway masterpiece will be spreading its wings to major cities in the Philippines, namely Iloilo, Cebu, and Davao. Through this endeavor, multi-awarded producer Jhett Tolentino and FRONTROW Entertainment intend to contribute to the enhancement of audience development throughout the Philippines and to reach out to charitable institutions in each host city.
