  Pygmalion at Patio Playhouse


Patio Playhouse
201 E Grand Avenue Escondido

How much would you bet that you could turn a stranger into a completely different person? Snobby English linguistics professor Henry Higgins bets one of his pals that he can turn a working-class cockney flower girl into a proper, refined lady who could pass for a dutchess at any upper crust party. But Higgins' bet blows up in his face when his creation turns out to be smart, outspoken -- and the love of his life. George Bernard Shaw's most popular play, Pygmalion, is perhaps more widely known as the inspiration for the musical My Fair Lady, but this witty romance from the Nobel Prize-winning playwright has been delighting and scandalizing audiences for more than a century -- and its razor-sharp commentary on social class and the battle of the sexes is as relevant as ever. See Professor Higgins' attempt at an extreme makeover when Pygmalion comes to the Patio Playhouse in Escondido.
