SHAW: Pygmalion (Anton Lesser/ David Burke/ Geoffrey Palmer/ Hannah Gordon/ Lucy Whybrow/ Nicolas Soames) (Naxos Audio Books: NA3268.12)

Add To Wish List + £13.99 - Item is discontinued.

Pygmalion remains one of the most popular stories?á- but mainly in the medium of the musical; the evergreen My Fair Lady. But much of the charm and wit comes from the words and timing in Shaw's original play. Here are the characters of Professor Higgins, his friend Colonel Pickering, and their charge, Eliza Doolittle. Directed by John Tydeman, this delightful comedy is presented in its original play version, with the extended narrations setting the background and concluding the drama?á- a device perfectly suited to Audiobook. The first of a series of co-productions with Oneword Radio.
