En el tiempo de las mariposas (In the Time of the Butterflies)


DC Premiere!

The Mirabal sisters of the Dominican Republic were elegant and wealthy. Using the code name “butterflies”, they inspired resistance cells against the dictatorial regime of General Rafael Trujillo until their brutal murder. This memory play is a riveting account of courage and activism. Performed in Spanish with English surtitles.

About the Venue:
Set on top of the former Tivoli Theatre's balcony, the new theater house design uses the existing balcony's stepped concrete for its seating. The vibrant design echoes the vitality of the theater company and the Latino creative spirit. A curved wall for art dominates the lobby, while the concessions bar creates a focal counterpoint within the space.
