Dave chats with producer/director Karen Kluss ahead of opening night for My Fair lady at the Theatre Royal Friday Oct 25th and closing Nov 9th 2019.
The most beloved musical of all time, My Fair Lady returns to the Theatre Royal stage for the first time in 20 years.
A masterful retelling of George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, My Fair Lady is the tale of Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, and the arrogant phoneticist, Professor Higgins. Higgins accepts a challenge to raise Eliza’s status in society, but as he teaches her how to act like a proper lady, an unlikely friendship begins to flourish.
An endearing tale that will charm you with its warmth and vivid characters, and unforgettable score including: Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?, With a Little Bit of Luck, Rain in Spain, I Could Have Danced All Night, On the Street Where You Live and Get Me to the Church on Time.
From the team that brought you Chicago in 2017, and showcasing a stellar Tasmanian cast, this is theatre not to be missed!
