On the set of a promotional shoot for Lincoln Center Theater's upcoming My Fair Lady, the three stars took time between shots to discuss the new revival. Watch the behind-the-scenes video, featuring Lauren Ambrose (Eliza Doolittle), Harry Hadden-Paton (Professor Henry Higgins), and Diana Rigg (Mrs. Higgins) above.
The Bartlett Sher-helmed production will begin performances March 15, 2018, at the Vivian Beaumont Theater, where it will open April 19.
The principal cast also includes Norbert Leo Butz as Alfred P. Doolittle, Hamilton tour alum Jordan Donica as Freddy Eynsford-Hill, Hello, Dolly!’s Linda Mugleston as Mrs. Pearce, and Allan Corduner (Titanic) as Colonel Pickering.
Featuring a book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and a score by Frederick Loewe, the 1956 musical adaptation of George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion tells the story of linguistics expert Henry Higgins and the cockney flower girl he is determined to transform into a proper, dignified woman. The score includes such well-known showtunes as “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “On the Street Where You Live,” and “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?”
Lincoln Center Theater’s My Fair Lady will feature choreography by Christopher Gattelli and will have sets by Michael Yeargan, costumes by Catherine Zuber, lighting by Donald Holder, sound by Marc Salzberg, and casting by Telsey + Co. Music Director Ted Sperling will conduct a 29-piece orchestra performing the musical’s original musical arrangements by Robert Russell Bennett and Phil Lang, plus dance arrangements by Trude Rittmann.
