Pygmalion

May 1 - May 4

Pygmalion

Written by George Bernard Shaw
Adapted and Directed by Todd Barty

The glittering comedy classic behind “My Fair Lady.” When Higgins, an eccentric celebrity phonetics professor, boasts that he could make cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle sound like a duchess, she braves his abrasive manner for a chance to improve her lot in life. Higgins’s friend Pickering challenges him to a wager over his claim and what ensues is an hilarious exploration of language, manners, class and culture. Higgins and Eliza are profoundly changed amid some of the most glitteringly witty and caustic dialogue ever written for the theatre.
