My Fair Lady Musical Overview


When it opened on Broadway, it swept the Tony Awards. When it premiered as a film, it won eight Oscars.

Now, this classic that is packed with love, laughter, and your favorite songs comes to Lyric in a grand-scale production!

The charming story of Eliza Doolittle, a young flower seller with a strong Cockney accent, and Professor Henry Higgins, the phonetics professor who believes he can teach her to speak like a proper lady, My Fair Lady is guaranteed to capture your heart.

An all-star cast, plus the Lyric Opera Orchestra and Chorus, will charm you with favorite tunes including “On the Street Where You Live,” “Get Me to the Church on Time,” “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?,” “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face,” the delightful and infectious “I Could Have Danced All Night,” and more!

Lyric stages the American debut of a grand production from Théâtre du Châtelet and director Robert Carsen, featuring sets by Tim Hatley and costumes by Anthony Powell. “If there is a theater outside the English-speaking world where productions of American musical comedies equal or surpass those of Broadway, the Théâtre du Châtelet is it,” raves The New York Times.
