After a stunning opening weekend, there are just two weekends left to catch this new production of George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion at Black Box Performing Arts Center. Pygmalion inspired the hit Broadway musical My Fair Lady, but in this version Eliza Doolittle is nobody’s lady. This immersive production gives audiences a vibrant look at Henry Higgins’ wild experiment.

BBPAC’s production is directed by Matt Okin, Stage Managed by Anthony Altavilla, and features the talents of Zach Abraham, Stacy Cancelarich, Michael Gardiner, Sara Giacomini, Kentrell Loftin, Sean Mannix, Ellen Revesz, Ilana Schimmel, Laurence Wallace, and Katherine Anne Marie as Eliza Doolittle. Pygmalion is sponsored in part by Dance Art Creative Center, Bauer Printing, and Mike Pessolano of Friedburg Properties.

Pygmalion is the first main stage show of 2020. The Black Box Performing Arts Center (home of the performing arts school Black Box Studios, est. 2007) continues to emerge as the Tri-State area’s premiere destination for both cutting-edge professional theater and collaborative performing arts education — now located in Englewood, NJ— just a quick ride over the George Washington Bridge. Black Box was the recipient of the 2017 Teaneck Chamber of Commerce’s Cultural Arts Award, and currently serves on the Chamber Board as the Chair of the Cultural Arts Committee. In addition to main stage productions, Black Box PAC will present shows for kids, original material, and special events including Open Mic Nights, Comedy Nights, and staged readings.
