Back in Melbourne: a long overdue revival of Lerner & Loewe’s much-loved musical, My Fair Lady.
This limited engagement at the Alexander Theatre (Clayton) is a truly loverly way to celebrate Melbourne’s theatre scene back in bloom!
My Fair Lady tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor determined to transform Eliza into his idea of a “proper lady”. But who really is being transformed?
Directed by Robert Ray, this sublime production features the GSOV Orchestra, playing Frederick Loewe’s ravishing score and a book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner. My Fair Lady boasts a bouquet of classic songs: I Could Have Danced All Night, Get Me to the Church on Time, Wouldn’t It Be Loverly, On the Street Where You Live, The Rain in Spain, and I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face.
