PHOTO CALL: Robert Sean Leonard, Paxton Whitehead and Charlotte Parry in the Old Globe's Pygmalion

Director Nicholas Martin's new staging of George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion, starring Tony Award winner Robert Sean Leonard as Prof. Henry Higgins and Charlotte Parry as Eliza, opened Jan. 17 following previews from Jan. 12 at The Old Globe in San Diego.

Leonard ("House.", The Invention of Love)>The Importance of Being Earnest) are joined by Kandis Chappell as Mrs. Higgins, Don Sparks as Mr. Doolittle, Deborah Taylor as Mrs. Pearce and Paxton Whitehead as Col. Pickering.

The piece is billed as a 100th-anniversary production of the classic about a lower-class flower girl named Eliza who breaks down social barriers after she learns to speak perfect English under the wing of Prof. Higgins, the speech and dialect expert who is also a selfish bully. Here's a look at the production:
