Why See My Fair Lady?
The rain in Spayyyn...
The musical that launched both the careers of Dame Julie Andrews and Audrey Hepburn (in the movie version) this uplifting musical comedy of upward mobility, snobbery and love is a firm favorite in theater canon. Based on George Bernard-Shaw's novel Pygmalion, follow the fortunes of a poor flower-seller girl as she is plucked from obscurity to become a lady.
For Professor Henry Higgins, a person's voice is of the utmost importance. A student of phonetics, he holds the opinion that with the right accent and tone of speech, anything is achievable. To prove his point, he wagers a friend that he can teach cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle to speak 'properly', and then present her as an upper class lady at a high society ball. So the pair's lessons begins, but little does Henry Higgins know, that their time together will change him just as much as it does her!
Regarded as one of the greatest musicals of all time, this jubilant show features the songs 'Wouldn't it be Loverly', 'I Could Have Danced All Night', and 'The Rain in Spain'. It premiered on Broadway in 1956, with Julie Andrews in the role of Eliza, and won six Tony Awards!
