My Fair Lady is set to blossom at the London Coliseum in summer 2022. Lerner and Loewe’s My Fair Lady tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young cockney flower peddler who meets by chance Henry Higgins. Higgins is a linguistics professor who is determined to prove that he can teach anyone to speak in such a way that they will be accepted by the highest ranks of society.
While a wager is made on whether or not the professor can fundamentally change Eliza’s speech, and therefore her prospects in life, it remains to be seen exactly who will be changing who as the story progresses.
This charming theatre classic features such familiar 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.

The History of My Fair Lady the musical
The stage musical debuted on Broadway in 1956 and quickly became a rousing success with critics and audiences alike. The show would go on to set a record for the longest run of any Broadway musical up to that point. The show would transfer to the West End’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane in 1958 with many of the actors from the original run reprising their roles.
The West End run would be incredibly well received running for more than 5 years. Revivals both on Broadway and in the West End would follow as well as numerous foreign and touring productions.
My Fair Lady classic film
In 1964 My Fair Lady was released and quickly became a critical and box office runaway success. The film was adapted from the 1956 Lerner and Loewe stage musical which was based on famed Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw's 1913 play Pygmalion.
The film starred Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle with Rex Harrison as Henry Higgins with Stanley Holloway, Gladys Cooper and Wilfrid Hyde-White in supporting roles. The film won 8 Academy Awards and is consistently ranked among the best American films.
The screenplay came from Alan Jay Lerner (who wrote the book for the Lerner and Loewe musical) and the film was directed by George Cukor.
