Higgins in Harlem

Rated 5.0

George Bernard Shaw’s story of Pygmalion is moved to New York’s Harlem in the late 1930s in this African American reimagining by Lawrence Thelen. Exceptional performances by Tory Scroggins as Henry Higgins and Missira Ross as Eliza Doolittle are given solid support by the talented cast under the direction of James Wheatley.
