«The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain»

Based on George Bernard Shaw’s play Pygmalion, which itself draws on the mythological source of Ovid’s Metamorphoses, My Fair Lady is one of Broadway’s biggest hits. Its authors were specialists in the genre: Frederick Loewe for the music and Alan Jay Lerner for the text. It premiered on 15 March 1956 at the Mark Hellinger Theater in New York, with Julie Andrews and Rex Harrison in the title roles. From then until 1962, 2716 performances followed, which was a record for the time. The comedy was adapted for the screen in 1964 with Audrey Hepburn as the star. The plot is simple: Eliza Doolittle, a flower girl from the slums of London, takes diction lessons from Professor Henry Higgins to become a respectable woman… Language, social status: themes that still resonate strongly today. I could have danced all night… And you?
