The cast was led by Anthony Andrews as Henry Higgins, a role he played in a 2001 London production; Alexandra Silber, who appeared on Broadway in Master Class, as Eliza Doolittle; Paxton Whitehead as Colonel Pickering, a role he played in the 1993 Broadway revival; Michael McCormick, a Broadway regular in Curtains and other shows, as Alfred P. Doolittle; Matthew Scott (Freddy Eynsford-Hill); Zoe Vonder Haar (Mrs. Higgins); and Peggy Billo (Mrs. Pearce).

My Fair Lady, according to press notes, "tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney flower girl who takes speech lessons from professor Henry Higgins, a phoneticist, so that she may pass as a lady." Based on George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, My Fair Lady features such classic as “On The Street Where You Live,” “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “I’ve Grown Accustomed To Her Face” and “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?”

Directed by Marc Bruni, the limited engagement was choreographed by Chris Bailey and music-directed by Ben Whiteley.

The production also had scenic design by Timothy R. Mackabee with costume design by Amy Clark, lighting design by John Lasiter, sound design by John Shivers and Hugh Sweeney and video design by Nathan W. Scheuer. Wig design was by Leah J. Loukas, and the production stage manager is Nevin Hedley.
