Pygmalion | [Bernard Shaw]

Pygmalion

Pygmalion remains one of the most popular stories, but mainly in the medium of the musical; the evergreen My Fair Lady. But much of the charm and wit comes from the words and timing in Shaw's original play. Here are the characters of Professor Higgins, his friend Colonel Pickering, and their charge, Eliza Doolittle.

    "Better than 'My Fair Lady'"

    I've never cared for the movie 'My Fair Lady.' But Anton Lesser is one of my favorite actors, so I thought I'd give this a try. The story is quite different - and much, much better - than the movie. Anton Lesser portrays Henry Higgins as a younger man - perhaps in his 30's - so there is not the icky 'dirty old man' aspect that Rex Harrison conveyed. The ending is more satisfactory, as well. Very funny, well acted by the cast, and much better than the movie adaptation!

    "Classroom Use"

    I used this version for my high school senior English classroom. It was much better than having the students read it aloud, but it was missing parts from the play itself (even though it says it is unabridged). I don't know if that is an editor's issue with the version we use in class or how Shaw printed it. It was easy to figure out though.
