The Lincoln Center Theater’s critically acclaimed, multi-award-winning production of My Fair Lady comes to London in Summer 2022, the first major West End revival of Lerner & Loewe’s much-loved musical for 21 years.
This 16-week engagement at the London Coliseum is a truly loverly way to celebrate London’s theatre scene back in bloom!
My Fair Lady musical 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?
Amara Okereke, who won the Stage Debut Award for her performance as Cosette in Les Misérables, plays Eliza. In the role of Henry Higgins is Harry Haddon-Paton. He received a Tony Award nomination for his performance on Broadway. He is best known for his roles in The Crown and Downton Abbey.
Stage legend Dame Vanessa Redgrave will play Mrs Higgins. Redgrave is returning to the West End stage for the first time since 2018. Joining her will be Maureen Beattie who will play Mrs Pearce and Sharif Afifi who will play Freddie Eynesford-Hill.
Directed by Bartlett Sher, this sublime production will feature the English National Opera orchestra playing Frederick Loewe’s ravishing score and a book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner.
The incredible score includes the classic My Fair Lady 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.
