This endearing story of transformation is based on the George Bernard Shaw play, Pygmalion, and delights audiences with its witty comedy and captivating musical score. With music and lyrics from the legendary duo of Lerner and Loewe, this timeless musical sets the standard for all others.

In entering into a friendly bet with Colonel Pickering, Professor Higgins wagers that he can teach the cockney flower girl Eliza to speak proper English. Her progress from street urchin to sophisticated English Lady is immortalized in the classic song, “The Rain in Spain.” Other numbers include the rousing “With a Little Bit o Luck” and the captivating “I Could Have Danced All Night.”
