About this show

Night of the Butterfly is a hilarious and poignant new family musical flapping its way to Off-Broadway this spring. Though Beetle was born with broken wings, his head is in the clouds as he yearns to break free from the humdrum world he was born into. Now that he is suddenly being forced to marry the pompous Sylvia Scarab Beetle (you know, of the North Swamp Scarab Beetles?), Beetle has decided he will go on an adventure to find a fallen butterfly. Along with his pals, Pill, a very neurotic caterpillar and Scorpy, a newly vegetarian scorpion, Beetle makes his way through the forest, searching for butterflies and adventures and now families all over New York can come on the journey too.
