"I truly could not be more excited to perform in London for the first time this summer. It's been a bucket list item of mine for so long," said Benanti in a statement. "And I've been practicing my English accent for months now, thanks to My Fair Lady, so I can't wait to try it out on some real Brits! (Just kidding I promise not to do that.)"
