Review Round-up: Is Pygmalion a Shaw Bet?
Pygmalion's story, Professor Henry Higgins betting he can coach Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle to be passed off as a Lady, has become all too familiar in recent years, not least thanks to the musical adaptation My Fair Lady.
Rupert Everett leads the cast as Professor Higgins with Stephanie Cole his aristocratic mother. Also in the cast are Peter Eyre as Colonel Pickering and Honeysuckle Weeks as Eliza Doolittle. Philip Prowse designs and directs.
Did this starry revival of Shaw's 1913 classic manage to sweet talk the critics?
