BD Wong in M. Butterfly, 1988



For his breakthrough performance in David Henry Hwang’s play M. Butterfly, BD Wong became the only actor in Broadway history to receive the Tony Award, Drama Desk Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, Clarence Derwent Award and Theater World Award for the same role.  His performance as Song Liling was a fascinating display of gender versatility; alternately fragile and ethereal and then brutally masculine. In the years since that remarkable debut, BD has managed to effortlessly glide through a successful career in all areas of show business.
