Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher will direct Lerner and Loewe's classic musical My Fair Lady next spring at Lincoln Center Theater. The production, at the Vivian Beaumont, will begin previews March 22, 2018, with opening night set for Thursday, April 19.

The 2018 revival will feature sets by Michael Yeargan, costumes by Catherine Zuber, and lighting by Donald Holder. Casting and additional creative credits will be announced at a later date.

Adapted from George Bernard Shaw's play and Gabriel Pascal's motion picture Pygmalion, My Fair Lady, with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe, premiered on Broadway on March 15, 1956. The legendary original production, directed by Moss Hart and designed by Oliver Smith and Cecil Beaton, starred Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews, 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.

This is the musical's first Broadway revival in 25 years.
