WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Adapted from George Bernard Shaw's play Pygmalion, My Fair Lady premiered on Broadway on March 15, 1956. Starring Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews, with direction by Moss Hart and design by Oliver Smith and Cecil Beaton, the original production is now legendary. It won six Tony Awards, including best musical, and became (at the time) the longest-running musical in Broadway history.
Now My Fair Lady is being revived under the direction of Bartlett Sher. Its score, written by Frederick Loewe (music) and Alan Jay Lerner (lyrics and book) remains as fresh as ever. Among the now-classic numbers are "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."
