Pygmalion and Cabaret the picks this month at the theatre

From flower girl to duchess

Pygmalion
April 22-May 2, 19:30; Krudttønden, Serridslevvej 2, Cph Ø; tickets 140kr; ctcircle.dk

Following his success with The Dining Room last year, minimalist-loving director Jeremy Thomas-Poulsen is returning to the CTC to take on the Bernard Shaw classic Pygmalion, the inspiration for My Fair Lady.

With Jens Blegaa, another esteemed CTCer, in the role of Henry Higgins – the professor of phonetics who takes on the challenge of passing a flower girl off as a duchess – this could turn out to be theatre gold.

This retelling explores the theme of learning another language in order to fit into another society – a theme all too familiar to many expats.

Cabaret
April 16-May 29; Gamle Scene, Kongens Nytorv, Cph K; tickets 50-1,180kr; kglteater.dk

A dark and fascinating Danish production (the songs are in English though) about impossible love in an impossible time. Set in Berlin 1931, Sally Bowles will bowl you over.
