Antigone believes that the highest priority, over the laws of country and the commandments of men, is one must do what is right. One girl, thousands of years ago, dared to stand up for her beliefs and face the consequences, begging us to ask, “What do I believe in? What would I sacrifice for my beliefs?” Anne Carson, a T.S. Eliot Prize-winning poet, gives us a fresh, contemporary adaptation of Sophocles' tragedy.
By Sophocles, Translated by Anne Carson
When My Fair Lady first premiered in 1956, it set new records for the longest running show on Broadway. More than 50 years later, Eliza Doolittle’s journey from selling flowers on streets of Edwardian London to dancing with a prince at an Embassy Ball continues to intrigue and delight. Based on George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, My Fair Lady looks at how classism and sexism can manifest in how we speak.
