The Old Globe celebrates the 100th anniversary of Pygmalion with a lavish new production of George Bernard Shaw's masterwork. When speech professor Henry Higgins makes a bet with a fellow scholar that he can pass off a common cockney flower girl as the pinnacle of English society, he proves to be an expert in phonetics but a novice with people. Directed by Nicholas Martin (Broadway's Butley with Nathan Lane and Present Laughter with Victor Garber), Pygmalion is a charming classic full of wit and humor.
