Hailed by critics and audiences for its heart and its wit, My Fair Lady is a beautiful musical about transformation, patronage, gender politics and class based on George Bernard Shaw;s play, Pygmalion. Acclaimed Professor and confirmed bachelor Henry Higgins make a wage with his linguistic colleague Colonel Pickering that in six months he can pass off "gutter snipe" Eliza Doolittle as a duchess at an embassy ball. The ending is left ambiguous, yet it is beloved for being both one of the cleverest and one of the most romantic plays of all time.
