How was your experience?
Make sure to bone up on The Economist before attending; Anglophobes will not appreciate this show. Exceptionally academic and intelligent, in the sense of Shaw's later work, and that's not a thoroughly positive thing. There's a reason you've heard of Shaw's "Pygmalion" while you've never heard of Shaw's "Heartbreak House." Carefully constructed political wordplay, designed to appeal to the idle rich, without ruffling their feathers overmuch; this show deserves to be seen, exactly once and no more.
