SynopsisLerner and Loewe’s My Fair Lady is one of the best-loved musicals of all time. Based on George Bernard Shaw’s play Pygmalion, Elisa Doolittle’s journey at the hands of Henry Higgins from flower girl to society lady has been enjoyed world-wide since the 1950s when it was first performed, both on stage and as a successful movie.
Brimming with familiar songs, such as Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?, With A Little Bit of Luck and I Could Have Danced All Night, exciting dance routines and a witty script, this entertaining musical will delight audiences, both young and old.
Professor Henry Higgins, a pompous scholar of phonetics, takes up a bet with his friend Colonel Pickering that he can transform the cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle into a lady within six months and pass her off as a duchess at the Embassy Ball.
Despite distractions from Eliza’s father, Alfred P. Doolittle; a young suitor, Freddy Eynsford-Hill; and an unfortunate episode at the races, Higgins successfully presents Eliza to society as promised.
But what of Eliza? Is she happy to be plucked from the gutter and paraded around as a lady by the unfeeling Higgins? What will become of her after the experiment is ended? ...
