MY FAIR LADY
Music: Frederick LoeweLyrics & Book: Alan Jay Lerner Perhaps the most popular musical of the 1950s, My Fair Lady came into being only after Hungarian film producer Gabriel Pascal devoted the last two years of his life to finding writers who would adapt George Bernard Shaws 1914 play Pygmalion into a musical. Rejected by the likes of Rodgers and Hammerstein and Nol Coward, Pascal finally turned to the younger but very talented duo of Frederick Loewe and Alan Jay Lerner.The story revolves around Eliza Doolittle, a coarse little peddler of flowers in Covent Garden who agrees to take speech lessons from phonetician Henry Higgins in order to fulfil her dream of working in a flower shop. Eliza succeeds so well, however, that she outgrows her social station and - in a development added by librettist Lerner - even manages to get Higgins to fall in love with her. more
