On March 15, 1956, Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe’s My Fair Lady arrived on Broadway for the first of its 2,717 performances (the longest Broadway run of its time). Considered by many critics, scholars, and fans as “the perfect musical,” the show’s Tony Award–winning original Broadway production starred Julie Andrews and Rex Harrison as Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins. But the show’s life didn’t begin in New York and it certainly didn’t end when the original production closed. Through performance and conversation, New Yorker writer and host Adam Gopnik with guests including actors Kevin Kline and Melissa Errico, and Lincoln Center Theater Artistic Director André Bishop, uncover the history of this landmark musical.
Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
