Previews for My Fair Lady at Lincoln Center Theater

Feb 28, 2018
One of the most beloved musicals of all time will return to Broadway in a lavish new production from Lincoln Center TheaterLerner & Loewe's My Fair Lady
 
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 the story asks--who is really transformed in the end? The classic score features favorites "I Could Have Danced All Night," "The Rain in Spain," "Wouldn't It Be Loverly" and "On the Street Where You Live." The original 1956 production won six Tony Awards including Best Musical, and was hailed by The New York Times as "one of the best musicals of the century." Now, making its way back on stage, directed by Tony-winner Bartlett Sherand into the hearts of Lincoln Center and Broadway patrons, My Fair Lady will begin previews on Thursday, March 15 this month--the same day as the original production, which opened March 15, 1956. 
 
The production of My Fair Lady will take place at the Vivian Beaumont Theater (150 West 65 Street). You can purchase tickets for previews here. The official opening will be on Thursday, April 19.
