My Fair Lady
November 8th – 23rd, 2013
Beddington Heights Theatre
Book and Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner
Music by Frederick Loewe
Adapted from George Bernard Shaw’s Play and Gabriel Pascal’s motion picture PYGMALION
Directed by Jamie Eastgaard-Ross
Misogynistic and snobbish Professor Henry Higgins takes a bet from Colonel Pickering that he can transform unrefined, dirty Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle into a lady, and make her presentable in high society. Eliza is willing to try, but will she prove too much for his machinations? Over several months Henry puts her through a grueling concoction of phonetics and posture, but is there some chemistry between them that perhaps he didn’t precipitate?
Based on the 1912 play Pygmalion, by George Bernard Shaw, and featuring such memorable tunes as, “I Could Have Danced All Night”, “The Rain in Spain”, “Get me to the Church on Time” and “On The Street Where you Live”, this steampunk re-envisioning of My Fair Lady is sure to leave you dancing all night.
Wouldn’t it be Loverly?
