A lavish new production of Lerner & Loewe’s beloved musical My Fair Lady transfers from Broadway for a 16-week engagement at the London Coliseum.

The production from Lincoln Center Theater marks the first major West End revival of My Fair Lady since the three-time Olivier Award-winning National Theatre production, starring Martine McCutcheon and Jonathan Pryce. Casting for the London Coliseum production is to be announced.
My Fair Lady, based on George Bernard Shaw’s play Pygmalion, features a score brimming with timeless songs including “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face”, “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly”, and the glorious “I Could Have Danced All Night”.
