Photos: M. BUTTERFLY Returns! Go Inside the Opening Night Party!

David Henry Hwang's Tony Award-winning play, M BUTTERFLY, directed byJulie Taymor, opened just last night at the Cort Theatre (138 West 48th street). We're taking you inside the after party below!

Leading the company is Clive Owen with Jin Ha, Murray Bartlett, Michael Countryman, Enid Graham, Clea Alsip, Celeste Den, Jess Fry, Jason Ignacio,Kristen Faith Oei, Scott Weber, Emmanuel Brown, Thomas Michael Hammond,Jake Manabat, Erica Sweany, John LeonardThompson, and Erica Wong.

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 introduces 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.
