Adapted originally from George Bernard Shaw’s 1913 play, Pygmalion, this timeless tale about ‘the making of a lady’, set in the City of London, remains stunningly popular in an era when the ideas and values at the centre of the story have largely become irrelevant. Yet somehow the elements of charm, simplicity and innocence displayed in the show still connect with people today. This production at the Theatre Royal of ‘The Lady’ with it’s lavish costumes, settings and fabuous cast is just absolutely loveeerly.
Still humming the tunes from the show guests made their way to the the Sydney Hilton Hotel Ballroom which had been transformed to reflect the marvelous show. Heralded by the Ballroom doors bursting open on cue and with more streamers (they still had some left after the show?) plus the mellow tones of the ‘Mell-O-Tones’ in full voice it felt as though we had wandered into 1946.
Guests, along with the shows cast and orchestra, mingled and ‘danced all night’ into the early hours with many half expecting to step outside into the old flower markets of Covent Garden.
This was not the party of the week – it was the party of the month or, better yet, one of the best this year. Well done. More infoShare
