In this fresh interpretation of PYGMALION, first presented on stage in 1912, phonetics professor Henry Higgins bets that after he finishes transforming Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle, her flawless speech and delicate façade will allow her to pass for a duchess at an ambassador's garden party. This classic favorite perfectly skewers the rigid British class system and continues to serve as an insightful commentary on women's independence.
