My Fair Lady

Previews Mar 15, 2018


My Fair Lady is a musicalized Pygmalion, George Bernard Shaw's now-classic 1913 play. It follows Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower seller who receives the tutelage of phonetics professor Henry Higgins. Her education functions as a microcosm of class and gender differences. Now, for the first time in 25 years, composer Alan Jay Lerner and lyricist Frederick Loewe's adaptation of Shaw's work returns to Broadway in a lavish new production at Lincoln Center Theater, directed by Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher (The King and I). It boasts such classic songs as "I Could Have Danced All Night," "The Rain in Spain," "Wouldn't It Be Loverly?", and "On the Street Where You Live."

The original 1956 production won six Tonys, including Best Musical and ran for 2,717 performances, making it, at the time, the longest-running musical in Broadway history. In the current production, Lauren Ambrose, Harry Hadden-Paton, Norbert Leo Butz, and Diana Rigg lead a stellar cast of 37. The original orchestrations of the acclaimed score are played by a full orchestra of 30.
