VIDEO: Jennifer Morrison Wants to Reunite with Hugh Laurie for MY FAIR LADY
In a rapid fire Q&A with People Magazine, 'Once Upon a Time' actress Jennifer Morrison was asked, if she could reunite with her 'House' co-star Hugh Laurie on any project what would it be. Replied the actress, " I would want to play Eliza Doolittle to Hugh Laurie's ... whatever that character's name is in 'My Fair Lady.'"
While she may not know the name of the iconic 'Professor Henry Higgins,' we'd sure like to see this dynamic duo reunite on a Broadway stage for the classic Lerner and Loewe masterpiece! Check out the clip below.
Morrison portrayed Dr. Allison Cameron alongside the British veteran in 'House'. She currently stars as Emma Swan in the ABC adventure fantasy television series Once Upon a Time, and also portrayed Zoey Pierson in season six of How I Met Your Mother. In 2009, she portrayed Kate Keller, in the Broadway revival of The Miracle Worker.
MY FAIR LADY is a musical based upon George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion, with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe. The story follows Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney flower girl who takes speech lessons from professor Henry Higgins, a phoneticist, so that she may pass as a well-born lady.
The musical's 1956 Broadway production was a hit, setting what was then the record for the longest run of any major musical theatre production in history. It was followed by a hit London production, a popular film version, and numerous revivals. It has been called "the perfect musical".
