Publisher's Summary

"One of Shaw's most enduring works, Pygmalion is an insightful comedy of class relations and perceptions, as played out between a Cockney flower girl and the irascible speech professor who has taken her on as a pet project. Described by critics as "a play of great vitality and charm," Pygmalion inspired the award-winning stage and film productions of Lerner and Loewe's musical, My Fair Lady.
An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Roslyn Alexander, Shannon Cochran, Denise du Maurier, Rebecca MacLean, David New, Kenneth J. Northcott, Nicholas Pennell, Nicholas Rudall, Ben Whitehouse, and Laura Whyte.

Listener Beware!

There is nothing wrong with the performance - but the play is abridged, which is not what the word 'Original' in the title line suggests!



My enjoyment of this wonderful, classic play was spoiled by having a key chunk of the script cut in such a savage edit.
