My Fair Lady
Experience one of the most popular musicals in a whole new light as it makes an exciting return to Broadway. Lerner and Loewe’s ‘My Fair Lady’ is back with a bang, produced by the Lincoln Centre Theater - the same theater that revived ‘South Pacific’ as well as ‘The King and I’ - winning Tony awards for the same.
Why Watch My Fair Lady
The musical is directed by the Tony-Award winning Bartlett Sher. It boasts of a cast filled with stars, including Harry Hadden-Paton, Jordan Donica, Manu Narayan, Allan Corduner, Linda Mugleston, Diana Rigg and Norbert Leo Butz, all led by the legendary Lauren Ambrose. Maintaining the reputation of Lincoln Center productions, My Fair Lady is a brilliant piece of work, glowing under the exemplary direction of Sher. The sets for the musical, such as the flower market and Higgins’ massive library that is stuffed with books are lovely and rich creations by Michael Yeargan. The costumes made by Catherine Zuber are very elegant and help add to the atmosphere and realism of the musical. You are sure to love the patterned smoking jacket that is worn by Higgins, and the beautiful ball gown worn by Elise for the Embassy Ball. Every scene is crafted with great thought and choice and glows in a serene way as it is lit warmly by Donald Holder’s lighting.
This musical is simply heartwarming. Romantic metamorphosis, as in the Pygmalion story, is an age-old tool for creating a fairytale-like mesmerizing story. This musical has its own share of charm, beginning with Henry Higgins, played by the incredibly dashing Harry Hadden-Paton. He looks to transform the dirty and scruffy Eliza, who he finds selling flowers at Covent Garden, into a demure, upper class lady, beginning with her accent and manner of speaking. The handsome man tries to prove a linguistic point yet inadvertently falls in love with the shabby girl, and so the trials begin. Eliza has to undergo tests at the Embassy Ball and the Ascot races in order to fit into the society of her era. Watch the satire as Eliza takes her place beside Higgins and rises to claim her place in a society that was severely critical of its lower classes.
