My Fair Lady
DIRECTOR Daniel Evans thinks this is in the ‘top three’ of the best musicals ever written. It’s hard to disagree – and it’s probably because it is based on such a strong play. George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion provided the basis for the musical about the little flowergirl Eliza Doolittle, who is taught to be a proper lady.
