Pygmalion - A Rags-To-Riches Story

Bernard Shaw's ever-entertaining dramatic tour de force is a provocative assault on the sexual politics, educational limitations and class structure of his day. The story stars egocentric Professor of Phonetics, Henry Higgins, making a bet with his friend Colonel Pickering that he can transform the manners and speech of Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle and pass her off as a lady in society. With Rupert Everett and Kara Tointon already confirming their roles as Higgins and Doolittle respectively, Pygmalion tickets are sure to sell out; showing at the Garrick Theatre from the 12th of May, now is your chance to get hold of these London theatre tickets today.

Rupert Everett
World-famous thespian Rupert Everett has appeared in numerous award-winning and ground-breaking productions. His first major role came in 1984 when he was nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best Newcomer for his portrayal of Guy Bennett in the film adaptation of Another Country; the film itself winning a Cannes Film Festival Award for Best Artistic Contribution. Perhaps his most famous role was as George Downes in the 1997 film My Best Friend’s Wedding, a film that remains as one of the top 8 highest grossing films in the world. For his performance, Everett won the American Comedy Award for Funniest Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture as well as being nominated for a Golden Globe (Best Supporting Actor – Motion Picture) and another BAFTA (Best Actor in a Supporting Role). He was nominated for another Golden Globe (Best Actor – Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy) for his role as Lord Goring in the 1999 film adaptation of the Oscar Wilde classic An Ideal Husband. Everett has also leant his voice to both Shrek 2 and Shrek The Third, playing the role of the evil Prince Charming. With an acting pedigree such as this it will be no surprise when Pygmalion tickets sell out night after night.

Kara Tointon
From the age of 11, Kara Tointon has appeared on our television screens. From her first appearance in Eastenders in 1994 as an extra, her career has gone from strength to strength.
