THEATER | "My Fair Eliza" 

When he wrote the 1913 stage play "Pygmalion," George Bernard Shaw named it for a Greek mythological character that carves a girl from ivory. The plot follows a phonetics professor who is challenged to reinvent a London flower girl with a Cockney drawl into a lady with a high society lilt. The play inspired Lerner and Loewe's 1956 stage musical, which was then adapted into a 1964 film starring Audrey Hepburn. Now, the two works have inspired an updated, hour-long original production, "My Fair Eliza," which will be presented through the holiday season by ShakeCo: The Shakespeare Company of Greater Rochester in association with Classics Theater of Greater Rochester.

"My Fair Eliza" plays 7 p.m. Saturday, December 26, Friday, January 1, and Saturday, January 2; and 2 p.m. Saturday, December 26, Sunday, December 27, Saturday, January 2, and Sunday, January 3 at MuCCC, 142 Atlantic Avenue. General admission tickets are $5. Purchase online at muccc.org or at the door.
