M. Butterfly tells the amazing story of the spy scandal that rocked 1980's France. This complex and engaging play, which won three Tonys in 1988, tracks the affair between an French diplomat (played by Clive Owen) who forsakes his wife and his country for an alluring Chinese opera star. Tony Award winner Julie Taymor (The Lion King) directs.

Currently owned by the Shubert Organization, Cort Theatre is the only legitimate theatre designed by Thomas Lamb still operating in New York City. America's foremost theatre architect, Lamb modelled the Cort's iconic facade on the Petit Trianon in Versailles. It has been home to some of Broadway's most acclaimed plays in recent years, including Fences and This Is Our Youth.
