Rupert Everett, Kara Tointon to Star in Pygmalion in West End
Shaw's comedy focuses on what happens when linguistics professor Higgins works to transform Eliza Doolittle (to be played by Kara Tointon), a common flower girl, into a proper lady. Additional casting will be announced in the near future.
Everett made his Broadway debut in 2009 in a revival of Noel Coward's Blithe Spirit. Among his many film credits are Another Country, My Best Friend's Wedding, Stage Beauty, and The Madness of King George.
