The Whistler by Stephen Collins
“Butterfly” written by playwright Carl A. Rossie, is a one man show about the life and times of James McNeill Whistler, the volatile American Artist who struggled mostly in Victorian England for personal expression in the arts and artistic freedom. The play depicts Whistler at two phases of his life: first as a bankrupt artist in his forties in Venice on commission and then as the established but lonely legend in his sixties in London. Met with rave reviews for over a decade, Mr. Collins' performances deliver not just the poetry and plays, but they bring poets and playwrights to life on the stage. Refreshments will be served.
