Festival Theatre schedules the musical masterpiece My Fair Lady for summer of 2017

New Bedford Festival Theatre has chosen “the perfect musical” MY FAIR LADY, for its 2017 Summer presentation July 21-30 for 7 performances at the Zeiterion Performing Arts Center, New Bedford, MA.

Based on George Bernard Shaw’s play and Gabriel Pascal’s motion picture PYGMALION with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe, MY FAIR LADY “the World’s Greatest Musical,” will come to life with the story, the songs, and the characters audiences know and love. Professor Henry Higgins loves language. Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle yearns to speak like a lady. Sparks fly when his curiosity and her determination launch a daring social experiment designed to turn a lower-class ugly duckling into a high society swan – with unexpected results for both of them. Lerner and Loewe’s charming and honored creation features such unforgettable numbers such as “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “The Rain in Spain,” “On the Street Where You Live,” and “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face.”

MY FAIR LADY won 6 Tony Awards and 10 Oscars and has become one of the most beloved musicals in musical theatre history. For summer entertainment on the highest level the whole family will enjoy, MY FAIR LADY is your best bet.
