Pygmalion
Revisit Shaw's 1914 comedic masterpiece Pygmalion as Professor Henry Higgins transforms the unpolished Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle into a lady. Shaw skewers the class system of its day and provides poignant commentary on the role of women in
British society.

Rogue Theater's interpretation of Shaw's Pygmalion will be directed by Nathan Robbel, Artistic Director of the Right Brain Project, where he directed Marat/Sade, among many others. This classic play will open Thursday, April 14, following a preview on Wednesday, April 13, and will run through Saturday, May 7, at the Right Brain Project, 4001 N. Ravenswood Ave.

According to director Robbel, presenting Pygmalion in a black box [;allows for]; stripping away spectacle to really hit on the core of what Shaw was trying to do In doing so, we've rediscovered the intricacies and playfulness of Shaw's words and how, in a society that is still quick to judge and condemn individuals based on their choice of words, the words make the man. Or the woman.

The 9-member cast includes Rogue Artistic Director Nate White; co-producer Nellie Ognacevic (who recently appeared with White in Rogues Don Juan in Hell); Kristina M. Schramm, the former Artistic Director of Lincoln Square Theatre; Joseph Stearns, founder and Co-Artistic Director of Signal Ensemble Theatre; and Kate Nawrocki, long-time ensemble member and now Associate Artistic Director of the Strange Tree Group.
