WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Theater of the Stars presents Lerner and Loewe's classic musical, My Fair Lady. The show is based on Pygmalion, a play written by George Bernard Shaw in 1912. Memorable musical numbers from My Fair Lady include romantic ballads, toe tapping tunes and whimsical songs. Audiences are sure to enjoy "I Could Have Danced All Night," "Get Me To The Church On Time," "Wouldn't It Be Loverly?," "The Rain In Spain," and "I've Grown Accustomed To Her Face." The story centers around the blossoming relationship between Professor Henry Higgins, and his student, Eliza Doolittle. The first encounter between Professor Higgins, the brilliant, but crotchety, middle-aged bachelor who is England's leading phoneticist, and Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl, takes place one evening near the Royal Opera House. Eliza is selling violets, and Higgins is out listening for new varieties of London speech. He is intrigued by Eliza's cockney accent. Shortly thereafter, Eliza comes to Higgins' flat to be instructed in the English language. During the visit, Higgins' houseguest, Colonel Pickering, challenges Higgins' to transform the guttersnipe into a lady. Higgins looks upon Eliza not as a young woman, but simply as raw material for his experiment... and naturally things begin to go awry!
