The multi-award-winning Broadway musical show, My Fair Lady is an unforgettable theatre experience, transporting audiences back in time to Edwardian London, extreme class divides and society’s prejudices. Lerner & Loewe’s masterpiece, based on George Bernard Show’s 1912 play Pygmalion, is a profusion of musical styles, colourful characters, well known songs and gloriously witty comedy. It has frequently been called “the perfect musical!”
A chance meeting between two noted British linguists, the arrogant Professor Henry Higgins and the kindly Colonel Pickering, leads to a wager that will test Higgins’ phonetics skills. After they hear a cockney flower girl caterwaul in the street, Higgins proposes to transform the girl, Eliza Doolittle, into a refined Victorian lady with an aristocratic accent designed to fool people from all walks of life. Eliza agrees to become their test case and takes speech lessons from the pompous Professor. Higgins and Eliza initially clash but then form an unlikely bond – one that is threatened by an ardent, aristocratic suitor.
Enjoy a night of fantastic entertainment with memorable songs such as “Wouldn’t it be loverly”, “I could have danced all night,” “Wiv a little bit of luck,” “The Ascot Gavotte” and “Get me to the Church on time” in this wonderfully uplifting show.
