“Butterfly”, is a one-man show about the life and times of New England native, James McNeill Whistler, the Volatile American artist who struggled for personal freedom and artistic expression mostly in Victorian England. He was a leading proponent of the credo, “art for art’s sake”. The play depicts Whistler at two phases of his life – first, as a bankrupt artist on commission in Venice in his forties, and then the established yet lonely legend in his sixties in London.

Presented by Stephen Collins, actor, teacher, and lecturer, with script written by Carl A. Rossi.
