The first thing you need to know about the Alley Theatre’s production of Pygmalion is that it isn’t just a staged version of the popular Audrey Heburn/Rex Harrison film. No, this Pygmalion is much darker, exploring the rigid class divisions and earnest sexual politics of English society at the turn of the 20th century.
