From Pygmalion to the international musical stages
Most people know the musical My Fair Lady at least from the movie version with Audrey Hepburn from 1964, but did you know it was based on G.B. Shaw’s play "Pygmalion" from 1913? He already introduced us to Eliza, Colonel Pickering and the obnoxious phonetics professor Henry Higgins who takes interest in the flower girl with the thick accent, aiming to turn her into a lady as part of a social experiment and bet with Colonel Pickering. Now it’s hard to remember the story being told without well-beloved musical hits like "Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?", "I Could Have Danced All Night" and probably the most famous "The Rain in Spain". The musical spectacle first made its way to the Broadway stage in 1956 and immediately broke the record for longest-running show, with almost 3,000 performances—which was unusual back at that time. The original Broadway production featured Rex Harrison, who would later also star in the movie version, and Julie Andrews as Eliza Doolittle. The story of flower seller Eliza and the rude professor captured the people’s hearts instantly, and by 1959, it was the biggest-grossing musical up to that point. Equally, the original soundtrack made it to best-selling album of the year 1956. Two years later, the new musical based on an old play made its way to the West End, with Harrison and Andrews reprising their roles. Andrews and Harrison may not star in the production anymore, but the show is as good as ever, so secure your tickets for My Fair Lady now on StubHub to discover or relive this beloved show.

The original Broadway show was promptly nominated for nine Tony Awards, of which it won six, among them Best Musical, Best Direction of Musical and Best Leading Actor and Actress.
