What You'll Get


Award-winning author Marian L. Thomas brings the adaptation of her acclaimed book Blue Butterfly to the Marietta Performing Arts Center. The historical drama offers an intimate look into the life of "Precious Blue Johnson," a young woman fighting against standards and stereotypes in her quest to become the first world-renowned black ballerina. Blue Butterfly: The Black Ballerina portrays the sting of betrayal, the struggle to forgive and the power of love. It's a poignant and entrancing love story inspired by the real-life achievements of trailblazing African-American ballerinas like the American Ballet Theatre's principal dancer Misty Copeland, as well as Lauren Anderson, Aesha Ash and Janet Collins.
