My Fair Lady, which is being produced by Opera Australia and John Frost, opened in March to overwhelmingly positive reactions in the press and by the audiences. In what can only be described as pure kismet, Dame Julie Andrews, the original Broadway Eliza Doolittle, is directing this charming masterpiece.
You will be entertained by an extremely formidable cast including, film and television actor Charles Edwards, as Professor Higgins, Anna O'Byrne as Eliza Doolittle, Reg Livermore as Alfred P. Doolittle, Robyn Nevin as Mrs Higgins, Mark Vincent as Freddy Eynsford-Hill, Tony Llewellyn-Jones as Colonel Hugh Pickering and Deidre Rubenstein as Mrs. Pearce.

This much-loved musical opened on Broadway in 1956 as the musical adaptation of George Bernard Shaw's play Pygmalion. In order to retain that feeling of originality, the set and costume designs from the Lerner and Loewe Broadway show have been revived for this production.
We all know the much-loved tale of the Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle who becomes a guinea-pig for change when the intense and demanding phoneticist, Henry Higgins, gets to work. His aim is to change the unsophisticated Cockney into a refined lady. You will laugh all over again as you watch the antics and listen to the timeless humour of the dialogue.
It's not just the dialogue though, you'll also get to sing along with all your favourites including:
Wouldn't It Be Loverly?;
On The Street Where You Live;
I Could Have Danced All Night;
Get Me to the Church on Time;
With a Little Bit of Luck; and, my all-time favourite
The Rain in Spain.
So you better get a move on, or should I say, "Move yer bloomin' ar..", no better not! The Brisbane season of My Fair Lady at QPAC's, Lyric Theatre must close on Sunday, 30 April. Get in now and purchase your tickets here.
