Musical based on George Bernard Shaw's "Pygmalion" and the film by Gabriel Pascal | Book by Alan Jay Lerner | Music by Frederick Loewe | German by Robert Gilbert
Is it possible to take a simple flower girl from the slums of London and, in the space of just a few months, teach her how to walk and talk like a lady? Challenge accepted! Henry Higgins, a self-assured professor of phonetics, decides to undertake this experiment, rendering Eliza Doolittle little more than a science project to be bombarded with abstruse language exercises. Just as the Greek sculptor Pygmalion once created a statue of the consummate woman, so will Henry Higgins take Eliza, the daughter of a trash collector, and shape her into a brilliant piece of art he can present at the Duchess’ Embassy Ball. But did the Professor forget to notice that the woman at his side isn’t made of marble, but is rather a self-confident woman with her own opinions and dreams?
