"Technically flawless...a world class performance of a theatrical classic." (Midwest Book Review)
On the surface, the prospect of listening to a live performance of Pygmalion, one which could be shared with my students, should be exciting. Absolutely not the case here. Shaw's script, unfortunately, is brutalized by the flagrant omission of many of his lines. Listening to the play, with a recent copy of the play in hand, I was mortified when I realized I would not be able to use this performance. Too many lines cut. Personally, I would have appreciated someone informing me that this was an "abridged" version of the play; it would have saved me the price of a download.
