My Fair Lady

Henry Higgins, a celebrated and wealthy professor of phonetics, makes a bet that he can pass off a low-class flower girl from Covent Garden as a duchess at the Embassy Ball. By dressing her in expensive clothing, improving her manners and by teaching her how to speak correctly, Eliza Doolittle is transformed into a Lady. Following the Greek myth of Pygmalion, Higgins becomes enamored with his creation, now the most eligible Lady in London. Adapted from George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, with songs by Lerner and Lowe, Quintessence presents “the perfect musical” and will explore what remains of the rigid 20th century class system, and how important appearances are in making a woman desirable today.
