My Fair Lady, with snakes.
Can't say I'm familiar, but it sounds classy and educated so thanks!
Thank you, Christi.
In the alternative to the Broadway version: Pygmalion with Snakes.
A story about a worm-class woman who could join the anaconda-class if the confirmed bachelor speech professor can get her to hiss "the rain in Spain is mainly in the plain".
I know. Sounds strange.
In the original Greek version, by Ovid, a gay sculptor falls in love with the ivory statue he has made, and the guy becomes straight
by kissing and feeling up the statue, which turns into a real woman. They marry and have children. In the Italian remake, this statue is a puppet called Pinnochio.
The Broadway version had songs by Rogers & Hammerstein. Coincidentally, Hammerstein means "Hammer stone", or sculptor
. He was not gay
. But then, neither was Pygmalion after romancing the stone
(yet another adaptation).
Apparently, if you've seen one, you've seen 'em all.
I don't know about classy, but at DC, educated you will certainly be.
