Bedlam returns! Fresh off a critically-acclaimed Off-Broadway run, Bedlam’s Pygmalion comes to Central Square Theater. Eric Tucker’s “revelatory” (Village Voice) and “playful” (New York Times) production brings Eliza Doolittle, Professor Higgins (performed by Tucker), and a cast of characters to life with just six actors. Immerse yourself in this gritty, fresh interpretation of George Bernard Shaw’s classic, exploring the negotiation of power through sexual politics.
“When Bedlam slices to the core of a classic text with wit and verve and a show-off’s delight, it’s doing what the company does best… lots of Bedlamite fun throughout.”— Alexis Soloski, The New York Times
“A hundred and five years after its première, George Bernard Shaw’s play remains a triumph, eliciting gasps and guffaws, thanks to this production by the experimental Bedlam company.”— Ken Marks, The New Yorker
“Sharma, in an exquisitely dexterous performance … raw and vibrant, exultant and unignorable.”— Laura Collins-Hughes, The Village Voice
