This beloved tale, based on George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, is a familiar one.
Covent Garden flower seller Eliza Doolittle is whisked from the streets by Professor Henry Higgins who vows to transform her into a lady and pass her off at society events.
Doolittle and Higgins are superbly portrayed by Helena Blackman and Mark Inscoe whose exceptional vocal talents and on-stage rapport help seals the deal.
The beautiful setting of Kilworth House Theatre adds an intimate atmosphere to the show with the natural surroundings also encompassed into certain scenes.
Number from Alan Jay Lerner’s stunning score include Wouldn’t It Be Loverly, The Rain In Spain, Just You Wait, On The Street Where You Live and the rousing Get Me To The Church On Time.
All in all a toe-tapping, feel good show which leaves you wanting more.
