WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
One of the most beloved musicals of all time, Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's My Fair Lady returns to Broadway in a lavish new production from Lincoln Center Theater, the theater that brought audiences Tony Award-winning productions of South Pacific and The King and I. 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." But who is really being transformed? The musical's classic score features "I Could Have Danced All Night," "The Rain in Spain," "Wouldn't It Be Loverly?", and "On the Street Where You Live." Its original 1956 production won six Tonys, including Best Musical.
