About the Show

One of the most performed musicals in America; a classic musical adaption of "Pygmalion" by George Bernard Shaw.

Story: Henry Higgins made a bet that if he could get Eliza Doolittle, a poor girl who sells flowers, to speak the English language properly, she would fit into the higher class. She fails on her trip to the Ascot races (although she does catch the attention of Freddy), but when she goes to the Embassy Ball, does so well that a speech professor proclaims her to be a Hungarian princess.
