New Art for M. BUTTERFLY Spreads its Wings

When the buds start to blossom, around them are butterflies. In this case, M. BUTTERFLY! David Henry Hwang’s classic returns to Broadway in Fall 2017, directed by Julie Taymor and starring Clive Own. AKA is proud to debut the revival’s striking new art—a painting of a beautiful crimson butterfly, startlingly pinned down by a giant “M.” Our team created the icon in close collaboration with Julie, inspired by vintage Peking Opera art, but with a contemporary twist.
