About the Event
Celebrate the return of an all-time classic musical to New York. Directed by the Tony winner Bartlett Sher, Lerner & Loewe’s iconic romance ‘My Fair Lady’ lights up the Lincoln Center Theater with a lavish production featuring some of the biggest names in musical theater.
Professor Henry Higgins is absolutely certain he can transform young Eliza Doolitle, a Cockney flower seller, into a perfect lady. He’ll change her speech, her deportment, her wardrobe… but who is really transforming who? With unforgettable songs and a rich blend of humor and romance, you too will feel you could have danced all night!
From its spiritual home on New York’s ‘Great White Way’ the Broadway musical has been packing the audiences in for over a century. Legendary writers such as Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Jerry Herman, and Stephen Sondheim, or partnerships like the Gershwins , Lerner & Loewe, Rogers & Hammerstein, Kander & Ebb, and Boublil & Schönberg, have created spectacular vehicles for star performers – so-called ‘triple threats’, who sing, dance, and act with equal talent – and powerful ensembles alike. Running the gamut from spectacular to stark and restrained, musical theatre can be pure frivolous fun, but has a long history of tackling serious social and political issues. Always primed for reinvention, alongside Broadway’s perennial hits and classics, musical theatre has a new vigor in the twenty first century, as live-action Disney, rap and ‘jukebox’ shows light up new theaters, and attract new audiences. The Show will indeed Go On!
A classic musical from the Golden Age, My Fair Lady is a romantic comedy, suitable for all ages.
