An absolute must see!
The Bord Gáis Energy Theatre has just announced that the prestigious and multi award-winning production of Lerner & Loewe’s much-loved classic MY FAIR LADY will have its Irish Premiere this Autumn.
Coming direct to Dublin from the West End, My Fair Lady is set to run from the 6th – 30th October 2022.
Adapted from George Bernard Shaw’s play and Gabriel Pascal’s motion picture Pygmalion, Lerner & Loewe’s MY FAIR LADY premiered on Broadway in March 1956, winning 6 Tony Awards including Best Musical, and becoming the longest-running musical in Broadway history at the time.
Following this success, the production transferred to London in 1958, where it played in the West End for five and a half years.
Speaking with us, director Bartlett Sher said:
“Getting a chance to revisit Shaw’s extraordinary story of class and privilege in a new age is a rare and special event and I am thrilled to be able to take this epic musical on tour for audiences up and down the country to enjoy.”
My Fair Lady tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor who is determined to transform her into his idea of a “proper lady”.
But who is really being transformed?
With a book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe, MY FAIR LADY boasts a score including the 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.”
My Fair Lady is truly a classic and not one to be missed.
Tickets starting from €21.00 go on sale on from today, Friday 11 March and are available to book through the Bord Gais website.
