In 1956, Lerner and Loewe’s masterful retelling of George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion took the world by storm and rightly so - My Fair Lady is that rare musical by which all others are measured. When arrogant phoneticist Henry Higgins encounters dirty, disheveled Eliza Doolittle in Covent Garden, he proclaims that in six months’ time he can “make a duchess of this draggle-tailed guttersnipe”. The resulting clash of cultures sparks a funny and ferocious battle of the sexes and launches both professor and pupil into a transformation that neither of them could have anticipated. The sparkling score of enduring favorites includes “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?”, “With a Little Bit of Luck”, “The Rain in Spain”, “I Could Have Danced All Night”, “Get Me to the Church on Time”, and “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face”. Don’t miss this joyful, crowd-pleasing classic of the American stage!
