My Fair Lady

Where Sydney - - Where Now Live On Stage -

Lerner and Loewe’s “My Fair Lady” is now play­ing in Sydney at the Capi­tol The­atre with a mix­ture of mag­i­cal mu­sic, won­der­ful sets, stun­ning cos­tumes, and great act­ing. Di­rected by Julie An­drews, the show fea­tures the sets and cos­tumes from the orig­i­nal Broad­way show, which opened 60 years ago. “My Fair Lady” is the stage adap­ta­tion of Ge­orge Bernard Shaw’s 1913 play, “Pyg­malion”, where a pho­net­ics pro­fes­sor, Henry Hig­gins, sets out to trans­form a young Cock­ney flower seller, El­iza Doolit­tle, into a ‘lady’ to win a bet. The show fea­tures such mu­si­cal de­lights as “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?”, “On The Street Where You Live”, “I Could Have Danced All Night” and “Get Me to the Church on Time”. The im­pres­sive cast in­cludes English ac­tor Charles Ed­wards, who plays Pro­fes­sor Hig­gins and Aus­tralian star Anna O’byrne who plays El­iza Doolit­tle. They are well sup­ported by other cast mem­bers in­clud­ing Reg Liver­more (Al­fred P. Doolit­tle), Robyn Nevin (Mrs Hig­gins), Joel Par­nis (Freddy Eyns­ford-hill), Tony Llewellyn-jones (Colonel Pick­er­ing) and Dei­dre Ruben­stein (Mrs Pearce).

Ongoing, Capi­tol The­atre, 13 Camp­bell Street, Hay­mar­ket. 136 100. my­fair­la­dy­mu­si­cal.com.au
