When gritty flower seller Eliza Doolittle takes on the condescending Henry Higgins in her Act I song "Just You Wait," she imagines all kinds of revenge on the grammarian–going so far as to seek his execution.
Eliza goes on, in Alan Jay Lerner's lyric: "One evening the king will say, 'Oh, Liza, old thing–I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of May, I proclaim Liza Doolittle Day!'" In honor of this very special theatrical day, Heather Parcells (A Chorus Line, Wonderland, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) and musician Richard Rockage (Newsies, Bullets Over Broadway, Elf, Aladdin, It Shoulda Been You) decided to celebrate with a modern twist on another song from the same show, "Wouldn't It Be Loverly?," taking us through an actor's real life and fantasies on location in the Broadway Theatre District and Central Park. Here is the result, arranged and orchestrated by Rockage along with the vocal and dance talents of Denis Lambert, Nicolas Dromard, Marrick Smith and Patch David.
