My Fair Lady

Broward Stage Door Theatre Presents
My Fair Lady
Book and Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner

Music by Frederick Loewe
Feb 17 – Mar 25

My Fair Lady is a musical based upon George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion.

Professor Henry Higgins meets a fellow scholar, Colonel Pickering, and a somewhat raucous Cockney flower girl, Liza Doolittle.  Higgins casually mentions to Pickering that given a little time he could turn her into a lady, so when Liza appears later at his residence asking him to make good on his boast, Higgins accepts Pickering's wager on the affair.  It is a long, hard struggle, but by the time Liza can properly enunciate “The Rain in Spain” and Higgins takes her to the Ascot races, her pronunciation is perfect, even if her conversation is not.  Later she is successfully passed off as a lady at a ball; and her father, the dustman Alfred P. Doolittle, inherits a fortune and must conform to middle‐class morality.  Eliza is wooed by the lovesick Freddy Eynsford‐Hill, but she has deeper feeling for the unfeeling Higgins so she leaves to try and figure things out about her new life.
