Lent Week 8 to Week 9
My Fair Lady charts the transformation of Eliza Doolittle from a Cockney street-urchin into a genuine Edwardian lady. Starting as a bet between Higgins, an opinionated linguistics professor, and the affable Colonel Pickering, Eliza’s journey takes her into the lives and homes of the English upper class, to Ascot and to the Embassy Ball. But after all the beautiful dresses, the elegant parties and the handsome suitors, perhaps all she really wants is a little kindness.
This fresh and exciting revival capitalises upon Cambridge’s finest talent to combine the vibrancy of London’s East End with the refined world of the Edwardian aristocracy. Including musical classics such as ‘Wouldn’t It Be Loverly’, ‘I Could Have Danced All Night’, ‘On the Street Where You Live’ and ‘Get Me To the Church on Time’, My Fair Lady is one of the best-loved musicals of all time.
