This summer, the award-winning author Marian L. Thomas, will bring the adaptation of her acclaimed book Blue Butterfly to the Marietta Performing Arts Center. Blue Butterfly – The Black Ballerina will offer a memorable performance from June 16 through June 19, 2016. The performance, by a well-talented multi-cultural cast that includes one of Marietta’s own residents (Antonia McManus – known for her role in Good Girl), provides an intimate look into the life of the character dubbed “Precious Blue Johnson” – a young woman struggling to become the first principal African-American ballerina. Blue Butterfly – The Black Ballerina looks to deliver a powerful and emotional story of romance, secrets, betrayal and forgiveness. Directed by Dr. Shondrika Moss-Bouldin, the play is geared toward the hearts of all women and the men who love them.
