In Ovid's tenth book of his poem Metamorpheses, the lead character Pygmalion was a sculptor who falls in love with a statue he created. Using this basis, George Bernard Show created his play Pygmalion, in which a common flower seller (Eliza) is transformed to pass herself off as upper class, simply by being taught how to speak proper English by Professor Henry Higgins. In the process, he becomes fond of her and falls for the new woman he has 'created'.
Now, the classic tale about language, class, manners and love has been given a Malaysian pinch, twist and squeeze. The tale is set in present-day Malaysia, although certain aspects like the words, lyrics, culture, set and wardrobe remain somewhat British, Edwardian almost. Expect lots of Manglish, malapropisms and hilarious turns of phrase and eleven original songs like 'Don't Talk Like That One' and 'Ai ah adoi, ai oh'!
Join the 14-strong cast and orchestra of 7, in this all-original musical show. Starring Harith Iskander as Professor Higgins, Indi Nadarajah as Colonel Pickering and introducing Michelle Quah as Lisa, the flower girl. Also featuring Fong Muntoh, Suzan Manen, Sarah Shahrum, Renee Aziz, Elaine Pedley, Llewellyn Marsh, Tabitha Kong, Janet Li, Kay-Li, Nicole Ann Thomas and Cristina Yap.
Directed by Paul Loosely with Executive Producer Faridah Merican and Artistic Director Joe Hasham. Presented by Maxis One club and KL Pac.
