First presented in 1914, this comedy, according to press notes, "follows the tempestuous story of the linguistics professor and the flower girl. It was an instant sensation and was the inspiration for the musical My Fair Lady."
Past participants include Blair Brown, Mark Kudisch, Kerry Butler, Tyne Daly, Jonathan Hadary, Daniel Jenkins, Rebecca Luker, Michael Cerveris, Karen Ziemba, Michele Pawk, Bruce Vilanch, Jack Gilpin and George S. Irving.
