Spring-Time Experimental Theatre is bringing Pygmalion – The Musical presented by The Parisian Macao and the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC) Macau to The Parisian Theatre on September 16 and 17.
The storyline of Pygmalion – The Musical by the 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 lady. They fall in love, but separate because of their class differences.
Spring-Time Experimental Theatre has produced an entertaining local take on this tale which examines issues of class, education, romance and gender, with a light and humorous touch. The musical’s cast will include local performers Perry Chiu, Kevin Lee, Chung Yat Ming, Angus Chan, Charles Teo, Vannizza Chan, Ada Wong, Connie Wong, Paris Wong and Yola Li.
