ORIGINAL MAKEOVER STORY @ EVERYMAN TO CLOSE OUT 20TH SEASON

In celebration of their final show in our 20th season, Everyman is bringing back one of their most beloved original company members, Kyle Prue, for the run of Pygmalion.

Runner Stumbles

Kyle Prue has appeared in 25 productions at Everyman including Everyman’s first show ever, The Runner Stumbles (see picture right). His last show, Opus, was over five years ago. Since then, Kyle has taken a behind-the-scenes role as Everyman's Production Manager and has produced over 30 productions. He is coming back for his 26th show to play the iconic role of professor Henry Higgins in Pygmalion.

 

PygmalionPygmalion is the original makeover story from which a thousand imitators were born. It first appeared in 1912 and has delighted audiences ever since. It's a comedy that's all about class and human relationships.
