Theatre Show My Fair Lady
My Fair Lady is an endearing tale that charms audiences with its warmth and vivid characters. The clash of cultures sparks some of music theatres most jubilant songs and witty dialogue. The triumphant score features unforgettable numbers including Wouldnt It Be Loverly?, On The Street Where You Live, I Could Have Danced All Night and Get Me To The Church On Time. Dont miss the music hailed by The Australian as Miraculous, ridiculously beautiful about the Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle and the appealing arrogant phoneticist, Henry Higgins.
