Blimey, My Fair Lady is Coming to Lyric!

Just you wait! This April 28 - May 21, bring the entire family to experience Lerner and Loewe’s beloved Broadway classic My Fair Lady on the Lyric stage. Join Professor Henry Higgins (Richard E. Grant) in his seemingly impossible task of transforming the feisty Eliza Doolittle (Lisa O’Hare) into a “proper” lady. Filled to the brim with charms, laughs, and songs you’ll be humming all night, My Fair Lady is a one-of-a-kind musical experience not to be missed!

This month, the stars of the show arrived in the Windy City to begin rehearsals. Get a sneak peek into the production everyone’s buzzing about with exclusive behind-the-scenes photos and video. And make sure to get your tickets online or by calling 312-827-5600.
