My Fair Lady
After a record-breaking premiere at the Sydney Opera House in 2016 we are proud to be bringing the recreation of the 1956 Broadway production of My Fair Lady to Sydney’s Capitol Theatre in 2017.
Celebrating the beloved original, Lerner and Loewe’s My Fair Lady, with an outstanding cast under the direction of Julie Andrews.
The Cinderella story about the Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle and the appealingly arrogant phoneticist, Professor Higgins, is an endearing tale that charms audiences with its warmth and vivid characters.
The clash of cultures sparks some of the theatre’s most jubilant songs and witty dialogue. The triumphant score features unforgettable numbers including Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?, On The Street Where You Live, I Could Have Dance All Night and Get Me to the Church on Time.
In 1956, Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe’s masterful retelling of George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion took the world by storm. Playing the irresistible Eliza Doolittle was a young Julie Andrews, in only her second role on Broadway, a role that would catapult her into international stardom.
In a world first, Julie Andrews will direct a glorious production of My Fair Lady, teaming up with the Tony Award-winning Christopher Gattelli and associates of the musical’s original designers Cecil Beaton and Oliver Smith.
A stellar cast of Australian theatre royalty and emerging talent will be showcased in this truly momentous production. This is a theatre event not to be missed.
