Why See Lyric Opera of Chicago: My Fair Lady?

Starring Richard E. Grant

It's been a Broadway Tony Award-winning musical with Julie Andrews, it's been a Academy-Award-winning musical movie starring Audrey Hepburn. Now it comes to The Lyric Opera in a brand-new full-scale operatic musical production, featuring the entire Opera chorus, plus Richard E. Grant (Jackie) as Henry Higgins, Lisa O'Hare (Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder) as Eliza Doolittle and Bryce Pinkham (Holiday Inn) as Freddy Eynsford-Hill. Lerner and Loewe's iconic musical about crossing the social divide for love will warm your heart, and is in our heroine's very own worlds, "Luvverly!"

This new production will feature all of the best-loved numbers as seen in the movie and musical including 'On the Street Where You Live', 'Get Me to the Church on Time', 'Wouldn't It Be Loverly?', 'I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face', and 'I Could Have Danced All Night', and is a co-production of the French-based Theatre du Chatelet.
