The bewitching story of a cockney flower girl's
transformation into the pride of London society is
also one of the best-loved musicals of all time. When overbearing Professor Higgins stumbles on Eliza Doolittle in Covent Garden he recognizes that her hideous vowels and forgotten consonants are all that separate her from the upper classes. Higgins makes a wager that he can pass her off as a Duchess in a matter of weeks. Too eloquent for a flower girl and without the breeding of the upper classes, what is to become of Eliza when the bet is over?
Alan Jay Lerner's adaptation of Shaw's Pygmalion sparkles with wit, elegance and romance.
