Pygmalion - 2018 - Off-Broadway

One of Shaw's most beloved plays, the basis for the musical, My Fair Lady. Professor of phonetics, Henry Higgins, makes a bet that he can train a bedraggled Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, to pass for a duchess at an ambassador's garden party by teaching her to assume a veneer of gentility; the most important element of which, he believes, is impeccable speech. The play is a sharp lampoon of the rigid British class system of the day and a commentary on women's independence. Written by Bernard Shaw.
