My Fair Lady
“My Fair Lady” is the Cinderella story about the cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, and the appealingly arrogant phoneticist, Henry Higgins. It is an endearing tale that charms audiences with its warmth and vivid characters. Headlining the company is acclaimed theatre, film, and television actor Charles Edwards (“Downton Abbey”), as Henry Higgins and the young Australian star, Anna O’byrne, as Eliza Doolittle. Joining them is an outstanding cast. Reg Livermore plays Alfred P. Doolittle. Robyn Nevin plays Mrs. Higgins and Mark Vincent plays Freddy. The role of Colonel Pickering is played by Tony Llewellyn-jones and Deidre Rubenstein plays Mrs. Pearce.
