My Fair Lady sets Christmas dates at Playhouse

My Fair Lady is set to tour to the Edinburgh Playhouse over the 2022 Christmas and New Year period, with tickets on sale – here – from 10am today, Friday 27 May 2022.

The Lincoln Center Theater’s critically acclaimed, multi-award-winning production will run at the Playhouse from Wednesday 14 December 2022 to Saturday 7 January 2023, playing 31 performances as part of a tour following on from its current West End run at the London Coliseum.

This production, featuring an on-stage cast of over 30 and a full orchestra, is the first major revival of Lerner & Loewe’s much-loved musical to tour for over 15 years. The last time Edinburgh audiences were treated to it was Southern Light Opera’s “sumptuously staged” production at the King’s in March 2019 (★★★★☆ Loverly)

My Fair Lady is based on George Bernard Shaw’s play, Pygmalion, and tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor who is determined to transform her into his idea of a “proper lady”. But who is really being transformed?

Best Costume

Directed by Bartlett Sher this production premiered in the spring of 2018 at Lincoln Center’s Vivian Beaumont Theater and was the winner of the Tony Award for Best Costume Design. It picked up five Outer Critics’ Circle Awards including Best Musical Revival, the Drama League Award for Outstanding Musical Revival, and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Musical Revival and Costume Design.

Bartlett Sher said: “Getting a chance to revisit Shaw’s extraordinary story of class and privilege in a new age is a rare and special event and I am thrilled to be able to take this epic musical on tour for audiences up and down the country to enjoy.”

Frederick Loewe’s score with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner includes the classic songs I Could Have Danced All Night, Get Me to the Church on Time, Wouldn’t It Be Loverly, On the Street Where You Live, The Rain in Spain, and I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face.
