"George Bernard Shaw's famous play, Pygmalion, inspired the legendary and award winning musical My Fair Lady, written and composed by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe. Based on the classical myth, Pygmalion plays on the complex business of human relationships in a social world. When Professor Henry Higgins (Mays) comes across a poor and uneducated Cockney girl named Eliza Doolittle (Danes), Higgins makes a bet that he can take Eliza from the gutters of London and pass her off as a society lady, by simply teaching her the right dialect in which to speak. Higgins soon discovers that this task involves much more than knowledge; it involves patience and most importantly, affairs of the heart," state press notes.

Tickets are currently on-sale and available by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212) 719-1300, online at www.roundabouttheatre.org, or at the American Airlines Box Office (227 West 42nd Street).  Ticket prices range from $51.25 - $96.25.
