Description

Lerner and Loewe’s legendary musical, premieres in the United States direct from its 50th Anniversary London production and U.K. national tour. Starring are acclaimed British theatre actors Christopher Cazenove and Lisa O’Hare who earned rave reviews for their dynamic performances as Professor Henry Higgins and Eliza Doolittle. “The cast is superb!” “A more perfect Higgins I have yet to see!”

 

Based on the Cameron Mackintosh/National Theatre of Great Britain’s award-winning London sensation, and hailed as “the revival against which all others will be measured,” this glorious, new production features one of Broadway’s most beloved scores including “The Rain in Spain,” “I Could Have Danced All Night” and “Get Me to the Church on Time” and brings together the original U.K. artistic team with direction by Trevor Nunn (Les Misèrables_), choreography and musical staging by Matthew Bourne (Swan Lake, Mary Poppins_) and production design by Anthony Ward (Gypsy).
