My Fair Lady:: Antardwand brings Broadway to Christ University!
After the successful staging of The Bengali classic ‘Chokher Bali’ last year, Bangalore’s theatre group Antardwand is celebrating the 100th year of George Bernard Shaw’s ‘Pygmalion’ with a musical adaptation of the book and a popular classic, ‘My Fair Lady’ on 20th January, 2013, Sunday at 5:30 p.m. at the Christ University Main Auditorium.
The story revolves around Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney flower girl and Professor Higgins, a misogynistic and snobbish phonetics expert who agrees to a wager that he can take a flower girl and make her presentable in high society. Eliza takes speech lessons from the professor so that she may pass off as a well-born lady. My Fair Lady is a comical journey of transformation of Eliza Doolittle from being a common flower girl to being a lady!
The 50-member cast and crew is all set to enthrall the audience with an entertaining show involving live singing, dancing, and an authentic portrayal of 40’s Britain from costumes, backdrops to British accents, providing a true Broadway experience!
