Comic sparks fly when a bombastic professor of dialects tries to turn a working-class flower girl into an upper-class lady, in this most popular of Shaw’s plays (the basis for the musical My Fair Lady). Full of unforgettable Shavian characters – Henry Higgins, Eliza Doolittle, Colonel Pickering, and Alfred Doolittle, among others – it’s a legendary satire on class, gender, and particularly British mannerisms all served up with gentle and loving humour.
Pre-show Talks by Matthew Behrens, Associate Producer, explain the history, story, background, and social/cultural context of the play and playwright and are included with the price of your ticket. Pre-show Talks are presented at 1:30pm before each matinee, and at 7:30pm before each evening performance.
