More about Pygmalion: Renowned director Nicholas Martin returns to the Old Globe Theatre to direct George Bernard Shaw’s most popular modern masterpiece (which Lerner and Loewe adapted as the musical My Fair Lady). The poor flower-seller Eliza Doolittle isin the right place at the right time, just as speech professor Henry Higgins makes a friendly wager that he can change her accent and pass her off as the epitome of English society. But will she survive Higgins’ boorish bullying? With an illustrious cast led by Robert Sean Leonard(“House,” Dead Poets Society, Swing Kids), and brought to lavish life as only The Old Globe can, PYGMALION is the funny, touching, unforgettable battle of wits between two of the theatre’s most iconic characters.
