Culture Vulture: My Fair Lady
Wouldn’t it be lover-ly to see Julie Andrew’s production of “My Fair Lady”. Buy your ticket today.
After a record-breaking premiere at the Sydney Opera House in 2016 the return season of the recreation of the 1956 Broadway production of My Fair Lady.
After many conversations, the idea was broached about recreating the original production in its entirety. The challenge we had was establishing what remained of ground plans, the costume and set designs and the original creative team and cast.
For the producers the slow process of uncovering all the elements that had made the original so great began. Along the way the team were fortunate enough to meet with the previous assistants of Cecil Beaton (the original costume designer) and Oliver Smith (the original set designer), who uncovered important materials that made recreating the magic of the 1956 Broadway production a step closer to reality.
After many years of research and collaboration, the producers are delighted to be staging the recreation of the 1956 Broadway production of My Fair Lady with none other than the world-renowned Julie Andrews as the show’s director. The lady who created and made the role of Eliza Doolittle so famous for the 1956 production.
