WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Winner of a 2018 Tony Award!
Adapted from George Bernard Shaw's play Pygmalion, My Fair Lady, with a book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe, premiered on Broadway on March 15, 1956. The legendary original production won six Tony Awards (including Best Musical) and ran for 2,717 performances, making it, at the time, the longest-running musical in Broadway history.
Boasting a score that contains such now-classic songs as "I Could Have Danced All Night," "Get Me to the Church on Time," "Wouldn't It Be Loverly," "On the Street Where You Live," "The Rain in Spain," and "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face," Lincoln Center Theater's production of My Fair Lady is directed by Tony winner Bartlett Sher. The stellar cast — led by Lauren Ambrose, Harry Hadden-Paton, Norbert Leo Butz, and Diana Rigg — tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor determined to transform her into his idea of a "proper lady."
