New York City
Can an over-educated linguistics professor transform an ordinary Cockney flower girl into an aristocratic young lady and fool Europe’s Upper Crust? You bet your “blooming arse!” In this age-old rags-to-riches tale the prejudices of the social classes are stretched to their delightful limit with a score of memorable Lerner and Loewe tunes. Winner of six 1957 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, the original production made a star out of Julie Andrews. This musical classic has enjoyed success with three Broadway revivals and motion picture starring Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison.
