Spotlight: My Fair Lady
Lincoln Center Theater’s critically-acclaimed production of Lerner & Loewe’s My Fair Lady, directed by Bartlett Sher, is the winner of the Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, and Drama League Awards for Best Revival of a Musical. Adapted from George Bernard Shaw’s play and Gabriel Pascal’s motion picture Pygmalion, My Fair Lady, with a book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe, premiered on Broadway on March 15, 1956. The legendary original production won 6 Tony Awards including Best Musical and ran for 2,717 performances making it, at the time, the longest-running musical in Broadway history.
Boasting a score that contains such now-classic songs as “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “Get Me to the Church on Time” and “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly,” the Lincoln Center Theater’s production of My Fair Lady was hailed by The New York Times as “glorious and better than it ever was.”
