THE CRITICS RAVE!
"Washington Stage Guild's 'Pygmalion' is just lover-ly.
Talking the talk is what George Bernard Shaw's "Pygmalion" is all about, and the lean but elegant production by the Washington Stage Guild splendidly minds its P's and Q's. The small but scrappy Stage Guild has made a habit of Shaw for more than 25 years, and the practice pays off in this tartly acted show." - Nelson Pressley, The Washington Post
"5 stars! - Director Bill Largess works his magic to present the popular Pygmalion
, the inspiration for My Fair Lady
. Together with a phenomenally talented cast, Largess brings Victorian England to life with all its prudishly hilarious sentiments. Look forward to an enjoyable evening of brain tickling wit, romantic tension , and the sauciest set of actors in the city. - DC Metro Theater Arts
"it's a pleasure to report that it's good. Quite good, actually." - City Paper
"excellent production underway from those dedicated Shavians at Washington Stage Guild." - DC Theatre Scene
plus...It's HELEN HAYES RECOMMENDED!
Featuring Steven Carpenter, Rana Kay, Vincent Clark, Conrad Feininger, Laura Giannarelli, Lynn Steinmetz, Phil Dickerson, Mimsi Janis, & Nora Palka.

George Bernard Shaw's
ANDROCLES AND THE LION
Shaw's clever fable-play about the Christians in Rome, where an act of kindness makes being "thrown to the lions" an unexpectedly good thing.
