4. Be transformed
Pygmalion – The Musical
Produced by Spring-Time Experimental Theatre, Pygmalion – The Musical opens at The Parisian Theatre this Saturday. The Hong Kong theatre group adapts its storyline, with the addition of some local twists, from George Bernard Shaw’s witty comedy of manners, which concerns phonetics Professor Henry Higgins, who tutors the very Cockney Eliza Doolittle, not only in the refinement of speech, but also in the refinement of her manner. When the end result produces a very ladylike Miss Doolittle, Higgins discovers that the one thing he has overlooked is that his creation has a mind of her own.

5. Act daft
Daft Punk Official Tribute Act
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then French duo Daft Punk have joined Elvis and The Beatles as members of that exclusive club—musicians who have given birth to tribute acts. This Saturday, Pacha Macau hosts the Daft Punk Official Tribute Act (DPOTA). Like their idols, the band consists of two DJs, decked out robot costumes and replica LED helmets. DPOTA will be playing an upbeat, organic and refined house-influence mix of all the Daft Punk classics—such as One More Time, Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger and Get Lucky—all that fans could ever desire.
