Lerner and Loewe’s award-winning story of a cockney flower girl transformed into an elegant lady is widely considered one of the greatest musicals of all time. When Lerner and Loewe’s My Fair Lady opened on Broadway, it collected six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, while the film version took home eight Oscars, including Best Picture. Based on George Bernard Shaw’s play Pygmalion, "My Fair Lady" is that rare musical by which all others are measured. The tale of a cockney flower girl transformed into an elegant lady features one of musical theatre’s greatest scores, including: “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?”, “With a Little Bit of Luck”, “The Rain in Spain”, “I Could Have Danced All Night”, and “On the Street Where You Live”.
FCT’s production of "My Fair Lady" is directed by Lucia Hanover and produced by Amanda Gibson. The music director is Brianna Williamson and musical numbers are choreographed by Jennifer Perrius. Performances will be held at the Theatre at Vint Hill, 4225 Aiken Drive, Warrenton, Virginia from May 3 to May 19.
