Lincoln Center Theater's 10-time Tony-nominated revival of Lerner and Loewe's My Fair Lady, now running at the Vivian Beaumont Theater, will launch a North American tour in fall 2019. Tour cities and casting will be announced at a later date.

Directed by Bartlett Sher, the Broadway production stars Lauren Ambrose (Eliza Doolittle), Harry Hadden-Paton (Henry Higgins), Norbert Leo Butz (Alfred P. Doolittle), and Diana Rigg (Mrs. Higgins). Allan Corduner plays Colonel Pickering, Jordan Donica plays Freddy Eynsford-Hill, Linda Mugleston plays Mrs. Pearce, and Manu Narayan plays Zoltan Karpathy.

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 new revival features choreography by Christopher Gattelli, with sets by Michael Yeargan, costumes by Catherine Zuber, lighting by Donald Holder, and sound by Marc Salzberg.
