For the second show in our 60th anniversary year, Irving presents Lerner and Loewe’s legendary musical My Fair Lady. Based on George Bernard Shaw’s sparkling comedy Pygmalion, it tells the story of Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle, and her transformation into a beautiful society woman at the hands of phonetics expert Professor Henry Higgins.
The score includes some of the best-known songs of all time – I Could Have Danced all Night; The Rain in Spain, Wouldn’t it be Loverly?, Get Me to the Church on Time, With a Little Bit of Luck On the Street Where You Live and I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face.
The show opened on Broadway in 1956 with Rex Harrison as Higgins and Julie Andrews as Eliza; who reprised their roles in London at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane in 1958 – the show ran for five and a half years.
George Cukor directed the Oscar-winning film version in 1964, with Audrey Hepburn as Eliza.
An amateur production by arrangement with Music Theatre International Europe.
