Laura Benanti has extended her run as Eliza Doolittle in Lincoln Center Theater's My Fair Lady through July 7. Her run was originally scheduled to conclude at the end of February.

Adapted from George Bernard Shaw's play and Gabriel Pascal's motion picture Pygmalion, My Fair Lady, with a book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe, is directed by Bartlett Sher and features choreography by Christopher Gattelli, with sets by Michael Yeargan, lighting by Donald Holder, sound by Marc Salzberg, and Tony-winning costume design by Catherine Zuber.

Joining Benanti in the current principal company are Harry Hadden-Paton (Henry Higgins), Rosemary Harris (Mrs. Higgins), Danny Burstein (Alfred P. Doolittle), Christian Dante White (Freddy Eynsford-Hill), Allan Corduner (Colonel Pickering), Linda Mugleston (Mrs. Pearce), and Clarke Thorell (Professor Zoltan Karpathy).

The production runs at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre.
