The storyline of “Pygmalion—The Musical” by the renowned Hong Kong theatre group, was adapted from the classic play “Pygmalion” written by George Bernard Shaw, with the addition of some local twists.
A linguistics professor meets Eliza, a young country woman selling flowers on the street while he is carrying out research, and is so intrigued by both her beauty and rough speech that he offers to teach her to talk like an educated, classy lady. They fall in love but separate because of their class differences. Meanwhile, one of the professor’s other students also falls for Eliza and vows to marry her. How will this love triangle play out?
Spring-Time Experimental Theatre has produced a fascinating and entertaining local take on this compelling tale which examines issues of class, education, romance, and gender, with a light and humorous touch. Starring Perry Chiu and Kevin Lee, this is riveting and unmissable theatre at its best.
