My Fair Lady
“Wouldn’t It Be Loverly” to see My Fair Lady back on Broadway? Luckily for us, Tony winner Bartlett Sher, the creative genius behind The Light in the Piazza, The King and I, and Oslo, has chosen this beloved musical for his next production at the Vivien Beaumont Theatre at Lincoln Center. It will be the first Broadway revival for My Fair Lady in 25 years and it’s about time!
Boasting a score that contains such now-classic songs as “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “Get Me to the Church on Time,” “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly,” “On the Street Where You Live,” “The Rain in Spain,” and “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face,” My Fair Lady was hailed by The New York Times as “one of the best musicals of the century,” and by the NY Herald Tribune as “a miraculous musical.”
Lauren Ambrose as Eliza and Harry Hadden-Paton as Higgins lead the cast. You may have seen Lauren’s heart-rending performance as Henny in our Tony award-winning revival of Awake and Sing! or as Claire Fisher in “Six Feet Under.” The compelling and dashing Harry is most familiar to American audiences as Bertie (who married Lady Edith) from “Downton Abbey” and as the Queen’s Private Secretary in “The Crown.” The talented and funny two-time Tony winner Norbert Leo Butz will take on Eliza’s father, Alfred P. Doolittle, and Dame Diana Rigg joins the cast as Higgins' mother.
