Tell Me More

“My Fair Lady” tells the story of a Cockney flower girl named Eliza Doolittle, who is told by pompous professor Henry Higgins that she can be turned into a lady with a little bit of his help. Higgins gives her phonetics lessons to lose her accent and transform her into a cultured member of society, and Eliza prepares for the Embassy Ball — but essentially feels controlled by this new man.

Throughout the course of the story, based on George Bernard Shaw’s “Pygmalion” and later turned into a musical film starring Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison, Eliza and Henry clash and come back together. However, in the 2018 production revived during a female revolution, the future seems a bit brighter for Eliza — who does not need to put up with a man’s constant demands but instead can pave her own path.

What To Watch For

  • Director Bartlett Sher reinterpreted the ending of the show, he says, in a way Bernard Shaw would approve. His direction also had to be approved by the estate of lyricist and librettist Alan Jay Lerner and the foundation of composer Frederick Loewe.
  • Scenic designer Michael Yeargan and director Bartlett Sher each earned eight Tony nominations for shows they worked on together, with Yeargan taking home the Tony for 2005’s “The Light in the Piazza” and both winning Tonys for 2008’s “South Pacific.”
