  • Description

  • Program
George Bernard Shaw’s brilliant 1913 play Pygmalion was inspired by a Greek myth–best known through Metamorphoses by the Roman poet Ovid (43BC-17AD)––which held particular appeal to Edwardian England: that of a sculptor who, disillusioned by real women, fashioned a perfect woman out of ivory and fell in love with it…which could have been kind of pathetic except for the fact that, in good Greek mythology fashion, Cupid brought that statue to life. In 1954 Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe adapted the play using much of Shaw’s original dialog, as the modern classic My Fair Lady. We present our “concert jazz” interpretations of this extraordinary set of songs both instrumentally and vocally, featuring Clairdee, Julie Alsin, Ian Whitcomb and Michael Stone
