Certainly for some of us this has been our battle cry during this past week, and nowhere does it ring more true than with the hard-working cast and crew of the East Hampton High School's production of "Pygmalion," which was postponed last weekend due to -- really, do I have to say it?
Come and show your support this weekend, Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m., for Henry Higgins, Eliza Doolittle, Colonel Pickering, and all your favorite Shavian characters at the high school auditorium when the curtain rises on "Pygmalion," the story of a professor of phonetics who makes a bet with a friend that he can take a guttersnipe flower girl and pass her off as a duchess.
This George Bernard Shaw classic has been adapted into film and musical form -- as Lerner and Loewe's "My Fair Lady" and even the 1980s classic "Pretty Woman." Serena Seacat directs the high school production. Admission is $10. $5 for senior citizens and children under 12.
Can I say "Shavian" again?
