MY FAIR LADY

My Fair Lady

A major West End revival of Lerner and Loewe’s beloved musical My Fair Lady is coming to the London Coliseum for the first time in 21 years. The Lincoln Center Theater’s critically acclaimed, multi-award-winning production will head to the London Coliseum in Summer 2022 for a limited 16-week engagement which runs from 7th May-27th August 2022.. Directed by Bartlett Sher, this production will feature the English National Opera orchestra playing Frederick Loewe’s enchanting score with a book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner.

First casting news is that Amara Okereke ( Cosette in Les Miserables and Polly in The Boy Friend) is playing Eliza Doolittle with Harry Haddon-Paton (Downton Abbey) reprising his Broadway performance of Henry Higgins with Academy Award-winner Dame Vanessa Redgrave as matriarch Mrs. Higgins, Sharif Afifi as love struck Freddy Eynsford-Hill with Maureen Beattie as housekeeper Mrs Pearce, Stephen K Amos as Alfred P Doolittle and Malcolm Sinclair as Colonel Pickering.

The score, which includes standards iincludin "I Could Have Danced All Night," "Get Me to the Church on Time," and "On the Street Where You Live", will be performed by the English National Opera orchestra.

The full company is completed with Dammi Aregbeshola, Bernadette Bangura, Joseph Claus, Jordan Crouch, Jamie Cruttenden, Francessca Daniella-Baker, Barry Drummond, Bethany Huckle, Heather Jackson, Emma Johnson, Charlotte Kennedy, Sinead Kenny, Jenny Legg, Tom Liggins, Rebekah Lowings, Carl Patrick, Tom Ping, Dominique Planter, Joseph Poulton, John Stacey, Joshua Steel, Oliver Tester, Adam Vaughan, Annie Wensak and Paul Westwood.

My Fair Lady is based on the 1913 play Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw. Lerner and Loewe's musical quickly became one of the greatest successes of Broadway and the West End, leading to the hugely popular film adaptation in 1964. The original New York and London productions starred Julie Andrews as Eliza Doolittle and Rex Harrison as Henry Higgins; Harrison reprised his role in the 1964 film opposite Audrey Hepburn as Eliza.

The musical boasts a classic score featuring hit numbers such as ‘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 tells the story of Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor who is determined to transform Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, into his idea of a “proper lady” within six months so she may take her place in high society. But who is really being transformed? 

Most recently on the London stage, Cameron Mackintosh’s 2001 revival at Theatre Royal Drury Lane won three Olivier Awards, and later toured across the UK and Ireland in 2005.
