My Fair Lady
book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner
music by Frederick Loewe
adapted from George Bernard Shaw's play
and Gabriel Pascal's motion picture Pygmalion
by George Bernard Shaw
directed by Joe Dowling
The hummable, quotable, utterly enjoyable musical for the whole family.
The story, the songs, the characters -- you know and love them. Now, for the first time in Guthrie history, see them come to life in a spectacular new production. Professor Henry Higgins loves language. Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle yearns to speak like a lady. Sparks fly when his curiosity and her determination launch a daring social experiment designed to turn a lower-class ugly duckling into a high-society swan -- with unexpected results for both of them. Based on George Bernard Shaw's delightful social satire Pygmalion, Lerner and Loewe's charming and beloved musical features such unforgettable numbers as "I Could Have Danced All Night," "The Rain in Spain" and "On the Street Where You Live." For summer entertainment the whole family will enjoy, My Fair Lady is your best bet.
