My Fair Lady
Based on George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe, My Fair Lady is the wildly popular story concerning Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney flower girl who takes speech lessons from professor Henry Higgins, a phoneticist, so that she may pass as a lady. The musical’s 1956 Broadway production was a momentous hit, setting a record for the longest run of any major musical theatre production in history. It was followed by a hit London production, a popular film version, and numerous revivals. It has been called “the perfect musical” with such memorable songs as “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “On the Street Where You Live,” “Wouldn’t It be Loverly” and “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face.”
