My Fair Lady, based on George Bernard Shaw’s classic play Pygmalion, tells the familiar story of Eliza Doolittle. Eliza is a Covent Garden flower seller who, inspired by phonetician Henry Higgins’ public boast that he could change her social status by teaching her how to speak correctly, turns up at his door asking for lessons in order to fulfil her dream of working in a flower shop. However, Eliza eventually succeeds so well that she outgrows her lowly ambitions, and manages to become an indispensable part of Higgins’ life.
The original 1956 production of My Fair Lady with Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews helped define the modern musical theatre. The original production enjoyed a seven-year run on Broadway leading to the 1964 film (starring Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn), which won several Oscars, including Best Picture.
Its classic musical numbers include “With A Little Bit of Luck”, "Wouldn't it be Loverly?", “I Could Have Danced All Night”, “On the Street Where You Live” and “Get Me to the Church on Time”.
