The Playhouse presents a fresh interpretation of “Pygmalion” by George Bernard Shaw, the classic tale of phonetics professor Henry Higgins’ transformation of the cockney flower seller Eliza Doolittle into a lady with flawless speech who passes for a duchess at an ambassador’s garden party. It opens at 8 p.m. and continues at 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, 4 and 8 p.m. Saturdays and 2 and 7 p.m. Sundays (except March 22) through April 12. Tickets are $30 and up.
A high tea includes finger sandwiches, sconces and dessert with select members of the cast and crew of “Pygmalion” while learning about the history of tea at 5 p.m. between the matinee and evening performance of the production. Cost is $20. Advance reservations on the “Pygmalion” ticketing page on the Playhouse Web site is recommended.
