My Fair Lady

Tickets are on sale now for My Fair Lady, perhaps the most beloved Lerner & Loewe musical of all time, which returned to Broadway at the Vivian Beaumont Theater in spring 2018, courtesy of Lincoln Center Theater.

The original cast included two-time Emmy Award-nominated "Six Feet Under" star Lauren Ambrose, taking on the lead role of Eliza Doolittle, with "Downton Abbey" and "The Crown" actor Harry Hadden-Paton making his NY stage debut as Henry Higgins, whilst two-time Tony winner Norbert Leo Butz and "Game of Thrones" favorite Diana Rigg have been cast as Alfred P. Doolittle and Mrs. Higgins, respectively.

Marking the first Broadway revival in 25 years, the brand new production is directed by Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher and is another shining example of Sher doing what Sher does best. Following his tremendous successes with South Pacific and The King and I, he has created yet another lavish and nostalgic representation of a timeless classic. With grand sets and elaborate costumes most directors would die for and rousing musical numbers galore, the audience is spoilt by an embarrassment of riches. Sher's interpretation of the ending of the piece may also surprise some attendees, but is actually more in line with the musical's original source material - George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion. Kudos to Lincoln Center Theater for once again proving itself as the frontrunner in staging Broadway musical revivals.

My Fair Lady, which won six Tony Awards in 1957 including "Best Musical", features the musical theatre standards “I Could Have Danced All Night”, “Get Me to the Church on Time”, “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly”, “The Rain in Spain”, “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face”, and “On the Street Where You Live”.

Our Review

This My Fair Lady is a winsome production. Don’t get to use that word in a sentence too often. But then you don’t see a confection of a show too often either. By now you all know the story. 1912 – London - Man, Henry Higgins (Harry Hadden-Paton), spots woman, Eliza Doolittle (Lauren Ambrose) selling flowers outside the opera on a late London spring night. This gal has spark and spit, but...
