Shaw, For Sure

How do you turn a street urchin into an attractive, cultured lady? In Dallas, you ban the use of shopping carts and limit the area's of food distribution for the homeless. But George Bernard Shaw took a different angle in his 1913 play Pygmalion. In the classic that would later become the equally beloved musical My Fair Lady, Shaw took a more romantic approach with a tale of love found through insightful etiquette lessons and comical speech therapy. Theatre Three keeps hearts beating between the upper and lower classes as they bring Pygmalion to the stage 7:30 p.m. Thursdays (no show on November 22), 8 p.m. Fridays, 2:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays through November 25.
