"My Fair Lady' comes to Ruth Eckerd Hall on Nov. 22-27.
CLEARWATER – Lerner and Loewe’s classic musical “My Fair Lady” is coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall Tuesday through Sunday, Nov. 22 through 27. Show times are Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 7 p.m. Two matinees will be presented on Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m.

Based on George Bernard Shaw’s play “Pygmalion,” Alan J. Lerner and Frederick Loewe introduced the world to the musical incarnation in 1956 when “My Fair Lady” opened on Broadway, starring Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews. This stage version went on to win 10 Tony Awards.

In 1964, Warner Brothers Pictures released the film version featuring Harrison and Audrey Hepburn.

The story centers around the blossoming relationship between Higgins, the brilliant, but crotchety, middle-aged bachelor who is England’s leading phoneticist, and his student, Doolittle, a cockney flower girl. Doolittle comes to Higgins’ flat to be instructed in the English language. During the visit, Higgins’ houseguest, Colonel Pickering, challenges Higgins to transform the guttersnipe into a lady. Higgins looks upon Doolittle not as a young woman, but simply as raw material for his experiment and naturally things begin to go awry.

Memorable musical numbers include “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “Get Me To The Church On Time,” “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly,” “The Rain In Spain” and “I’ve Grown Accustomed To Her Face.”

Tickets are $37, $47 and $57 and are available by calling 791-7400 or by visiting www.rutheckerdhall.com. Ruth Eckerd Hall is at 1111 McMullen Booth Road.
