Poster MY FAIR LADY - 1996

A priceless classic, MY FAIR LADY has become one of the most popular musicals of all time, and based on George Bernard Shaw’s 1913 play Pygmalion.

Egotistical linguist Professor Henry Higgins bets his friend, Colonel Hugh Pickering that he can transform Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle in time for an important society ball. His gamble could pay off, but the spirited Eliza is more of a handful than the Professor could have predicted.

As she slowly becomes more refined, and less reliant upon him, Higgins realizes, to his confusion, that he can’t live without her.

My Fair Lady opened on Broadway on March 15 1956 and ran for 2717 performances.

Book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner. Music by Frederick Loewe.
