his one-act adaptation of George Bernard Shaw s full-length classic, Pygmalion, has all the pomp and wit of the original without such opulent sets, extravagant costuming, and long running time! Thanks to the spirited My Fair Lady, we all know the storyline, though here Gary Peterson returns to George Bernard Shaw s original ending and shuns the romantic ending that Broadway and Hollywood demanded. Not only did Shaw hate that ending, but it also resonates poorly with today s modern sensibilities, leaving the Broadway musical feeling dated.In this fresh adaptation, as cockney-speaking flower girl Eliza Doolittle transforms into a young lady under the tutelage of Professor Higgins and Colonel Pickering, she grows not just intellectually but also emotionally, developing her own personality and pride.
