When it was first debuted in 1956, My Fair Lady brought fervently positive reviews such as the New York Daily Mirror’s, “A felicitous blend of intellect, wit, rhythm and high spirits. A masterpiece of musical comedy … a terrific show.” – a sentiment is shared by audiences still today.
The original performance also stands out for starring Julie Andrews, kicking off her career which would lead to roles in films such as The Sound of Music and Mary Poppins.
Throughout the years, the popularity of the show has inspired revival runs and translated performances around the globe, winning awards in countries wherever it is performed.
The musical’s popularity also paved the way for the 1964 film adaptation of the story starring Audrey Hepburn – a controversial choice, since most fans routed for Julie Andrews to play the lead of Eliza.
What Makes it Special
The utterly adorable character of Eliza Doolittle and her relationship with undauntable Henry Higgins would be enough to keep audiences charmed, as it does in Pygmalion, the book that inspired the musical. However, what takes this show to an unforgettable new level of fun is the collection of top-notch musical acts. Songs that have seeped out of the musical and into the consciousness of even those who don’t know the play include “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “The Rain in Spain,” “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly” and “On the Street Where You Live”. Lauded as one of the first musicals of its time to use music to progress the story instead of merely divide up the dialog, these songs let you cheer Eliza along on her journey to a new version of herself.
The My Fair Lady Experience
At the beautiful “Viv” (Vivian Beaumont Theatre on Broadway), there is no bad seat in the house, as the stage juts out into the half-bowl layout – even the discount seats from far to each side allow a great view of the action! The best deals are in the Middle Orchestra section – Rows L, P, O, K, however, if money is no object, then opt for Orchestra Right Center Row H. But again – there really isn’t any unfavorable angle in this lovely theater, housed within New York’s famous Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.
Come see the classic show bursting with heart and sweetness that follows a young woman as she morphs into a lady of society, however, audiences will be left wondering – who is really changing who?
