Item description for Pygmalion (Classic Drama) by Bernard Shaw...

Pygmalion remains one of the most popular stories - but mainly in the medium of the musical; the evergreen My Fair Lady. But much of the charm and wit comes from the words and timing in Shaw's original play. Here are the characters of professor Higgins, his friend Colonel Pickering, and their charge, Eliza Doolittle. Naxos AudioBooks expands its drama section with a new digital recording with Anton Lesser in the role of Higgins, Lucy Whybrow as Eliza and Geoffrey Palmer as Pickering. Also in the cast are David Burke as Doolittle and Hannah Gordon as Mrs Higgins. Directed by John Tydeman, this delightful comedy is presented in its original play version, with the extended narrations setting the background and concluding the drama - a device perfectly suited to audiobook.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pygmalion (Classic Drama)?

The acting was great but the story went no where  Oct 2, 2002
I have to confess that I found Shaw's play a bit boring. While there are points to be had here I found the long scenes and prolonged dialogue a tad combersome. Of course Shaw's main point is to show that one can rise above one's social status in life and better himself if given the chance. All fine and good but the plot to this play drags for far too long. Higgins comes across a as an asexual wooden being which totally brings the story down. Eliza is too prudish for my taste and the rest of the characters are just bland. In most scenes people seem to be screaming at each other rather then trying to move the sstory along. It truly was a chore to get through this one. As for the acting, it was fine but working with such a lame script the actors didnt' much engage my Attention. No, I would have to say this is a miss from Naxos which otherwise produces excellent audio books. I haven't tried Naxos's other full cast productions but I will see. This book contains three CDs it is a full cast version with sound effects and music. The third CD contains notes regarding the play and speculations on what happened afterwards. I found it all rather dry.
