"RS Francisco's Butterfly not only soars high; it scorches, too. The gender mystery of his character, which was instrumental in the success of the original Broadway staging, may now be known to most theater-goers, but his "little butterfly" still possesses the enigma and appeal: the preview audience willingly submitted themselves to some luscious and fun long-legged ride. Francisco spits out frustration and longing in hushed and dainty anguish, with never a moment of overacting."
