Pygmalion with Black Box PAC

"Professor Henry Higgins (Michael Gardiner) is, by turns, eccentric ... He seems to be in constant motion, even when he is sitting still. In short, he is the breathtaking heart of the show."

"Michael Gardiner portrays Jason and the menacing puppet Tyrone brilliantly as he is forced to jump back and forth between the two characters during scenes within seconds. His intense tennis match of depicting the naïve and heartbroken Jason, to the sadistic, foul mouthed puppet, Tyrone is impressively seamless."
