My Fair Lady New York Tickets
My Fair Lady New York TicketsBased on the famous George Bernard Shaw play Pygmalion, My Fair Lady revolves around the fraught, fractious and bittersweet relationship between a linguistics professor named Henry Higgins and a Cockney flower girl named Eliza Doolittle. Higgins makes a wager with his friend that he can modify Doolittle’s accent so that she may pass for a member of high society. The name of the original play is derived from a Greek mythological figure who falls in love with a statue he has created.
A Loverly Time on BroadwaySoon after the first successful staging of Pygmalion in 1913, various producers and creative teams had sought to adapt the story into a musical. However, Shaw would not allow it due to financial considerations. After Shaw’s death in 1950, composer Frederick Loewe and playwright Alan Jay Lerner began to work on a musical version of the story despite no guarantee that they would be awarded the rights to Pygmalion. Only after several months of preproduction did they beat out MGM for the rights to create a musical adaption. Stage actors Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews were cast in the two main roles after the initial choices turned it down. My Fair Lady made its Broadway debut at the Mark Hellinger Theatre on March 15, 1956, and proved to be an immediate success. The original Broadway production took home seven Tony Awards in total, including Best Musical, Best Director for Moss Hart and Best Actor for Rex Harrison. The enduring popularity of the musical led to subsequent Broadway revivals in 1976, 1981, 1993 and 2018. The 2018 Broadway revival, which was led by award-winning director Bartlett Scher, received 10 nominations from the Tony Awards but only took home Best Costume Design in a Musical. It also received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Musical Theater Album.

What can I expect from a performance of My Fair Lady?My Fair Lady is one of the most popular and frequently staged musicals on Broadway. It is very much in the mold of classic 1950s musicals with a number of well-known songs that may be familiar to you, but it is more dialogue-heavy than most sung-through musicals. The running time is nearly three hours long with an intermission between the first and second acts. If you need information about age restrictions, dress policies and other guidelines, then you should contact the theater venue directly.
