M. Butterfly'


April 11, 1996|By J. Wynn Rousuck

Never one to shy away from a challenge, the Spotlighters opens a production of David Henry Hwang's difficult-to-stage drama, "M. Butterfly," tomorrow. The seemingly bizarre plot is based on an actual event -- a 20-year love affair between a French diplomat and a Chinese opera star, who deceived him and his country in a most unusual manner.

John Decker portrays the diplomat and Lee Baliton, the opera singer, reprising roles they recently played in Silver Spring. Direction is by Joseph Senatore.

Show times at the Spotlighters, 817 St. Paul St., are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays, through May 12. Tickets are $10. Call (410) 752-1225.
