MY FAIR LADY: Journey to the Stage

Posted 5/19/2017

Whether it’s an opera or musical, it takes an army of dedicated artists to bring a production to life. Take a peek into the rehearsal room and catch My Fair Lady onstage through Sunday, May 21!

Take a look back at the first day of rehearsals. This production features 16 principal actors, an ensemble of 40, and 14 dancers! Many of these artists met for the first time just weeks before they would have to step onstage for the first performance.

Our cast and orchestra were hard at work for weeks on end. Here is a glimpse into the rehearsal room, just before the production was moved to the stage for a final week of rehearsals.

See My Fair Lady onstage through May 21!
