Upcoming Production

Pygmalion: a Romance in Five Acts

by George Bernard Shaw

Robert Brown Theater

April 26, 27, 28 @ 730pm

Pygmalion both delighted and scandalized its first audiences in 1914. A brilliantly witty reworking of the classical tale of the sculptor Pygmalion, who falls in love with his perfect female statue, it is also a barbed attack on the British class system and a statement of Shaw's feminist views. In Shaw's hands, the phoneticist Henry Higgins is the Pygmalion figure who believes he can transform Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl, into a duchess at ease in polite society. The one thing he overlooks is that his 'creation' has a mind of her own.

Come see this classic tale that inspired the musical My Fair Lady.
