About My Fair Lady
Professor Henry Higgins (ROBERT JOHANSON), the brilliant, crotchety, middle-aged bachelor who is England's leading
phoneticist, finds Eliza Doolittle (GLORY CRAMPTON), the little cockney gutter sparrow, selling violets near the Royal Opera House late on a cold March night. Higgins believes that the accent and tone of one's voice determines a person's prospects in society, and bets on his ability to transform Eliza into a duchess. Called 'The Perfect Musical,' My Fair Lady is often the standard by which all other shows are measured. Based on George Bernard Shaw's play and Gabriel Pascal's movie 'Pygmalion,' with book, music and lyrics by the legendary duo of Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, My Fair Lady's 1956 Broadway production was a
hit, winning the Tony for Best Musical and running for a then-record 2,717 performances. With Wouldn't
It Be Loverly?, With a Little Bit of Luck, The Rain in Spain, I Could Have Danced All Night, On the Street Where You Live, Get Me to the Church on Time and I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face it's no wonder that everyone - not just Henry Higgins - falls in love with Eliza Doolittle.
