The Story

Based on George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion, My Fair Lady is a classic musical look at Eliza, a Cockney flower seller taken under the wing of Professor Henry Higgins. Through speech lessons, a fabulous wardrobe upgrade and lessons in societal etiquette, Higgins works to transform Eliza into his idea of a proper lady. But who is really being transformed?
