Synopsis

When the Senior Class production of My Fair Lady is canceled due to budget cuts, two theater nerds convince the school to do a royalty-free staging of Pygmalion. When they meet a subway dancer named Alizé, art begins to imitate life as they try to transform her into their perfect Eliza Doolittle.

Development History

Melvin and Greg met while working on Polkadots: the Cool Kids Musical with Douglas Lyons and formed a partnership when they were approached by budding producer Kevin Duda with the idea to do a contemporary take on Pygmalion. An Equity-approved 29-hour reading was followed by the composers making their debut at the 2018 NAMT Songwriter’s Showcase.
