BroadwayCon has announced that Lincoln Center Theater's award-winning production of Lerner and Loewe's My Fair Lady has joined the MainStage lineup. The panel will feature cast members Laura Benanti, Harry Hadden-Paton, Danny Burstein, and Allan Corduner.
My Fair Lady joins Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Mean Girls, Torch Song, Be More Chill, Come From Away, The Prom, and Pretty Woman: The Musical as part of the MainStage lineup. Additional panels and details 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 a book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe, premiered on Broadway on March 15, 1956. The legendary original production 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. The current Lincoln Center revival is directed by Bartlett Sher.
The convention will run January 11-13 at the Hilton Midtown, with additional events to be held at the Ziegfeld Ballroom.
