Theatre Row Theatre
424 West 42nd St. (9th & 10th) New York, NY 10036

One of Shaw's most famous, this remarkable comedy hasn't been given a full NYC production in over 40 years! As an early draft of the Eliza/Higgins relationship in Shaw's PYGMALION, this highly entertaining play boldly addresses women's rights, gender roles, empowering the disenfranchised, and being an active and contributive member of the community. In this delightful fantasy, Shaw dares us to imagine how theatrically magical the past might have been!!

It's a crackling script that we've been aching to share with you and now, at last, we’re seizing the chance!

by Michael Dale - October 1, 2019

Imagine if Henry Higgins had wanted Eliza to end up with Freddy all along and you'll get a sense of where George Bernard Shaw was heading with his 1898 comedy of political maneuvering, Caesar and Cleopatra, which premiered over a dozen years before his more enduring classic, PYGMALION.
