UCO's Broadway Tonight! Presents: My Fair Lady
Fri, June 12018-06-01|UCO - Mitchell Hall Theater
UCO’s Broadway Tonight & Edmond Summerstock will present 'My Fair Lady,' the classic tale about a draggle-tailed guttersnipe who learns to talk like a lady. Originally produced on Broadway in 1956, it is Alan Lerner and Frederick Loewe’s most popular musical collaboration, earning nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical. World-renowned Broadway musical set designer and multiple Tony Award/Drama Desk/Emmy/Academy Award-winner Tony Walton will be guest director and designer. Based on George Bernard Shaw’s play Pygmalion, Lerner & Loewe's My Fair Lady tells the story of Professor Henry Higgins, a curmudgeonly bachelor who makes a bet with his friend, Colonel Pickering, that he can pass off a simple Cockney flower girl as a refined society lady by teaching her how to speak with desirable upper class accent and imparting proper etiquette.
