This magnificent entertainment features a book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe. Based on George Bernard Shaw’s play “Pygmalion”, it’s the story of a stuffy English phonetics expert who takes up the challenge of turning a rough Cockney flower girl into the semblance of a well-bred lady. The heart-tugging innocence of Eliza Doolittle, the flinty determination of Professor Henry Higgins, the exotic denizens of London’s higher and lower social reaches, all set amidst some of theatre’s most sublime songs- you can’t help bu fall in love with this fair lady.
