Lerner & Loewe's My Fair Lady, directed by Julie Andrews, just started performances at the Joan Sutherland Theatre at Sydney Opera house, and will travel for seasons in Brisbane and Melbourne following its time in Sydney. BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at the company in rehearsal below!

This beloved musical which took the world by storm, telling the tale of a Cockney flower girl named Eliza Doolittle whose world was forever changed by the brilliant and demanding phoneticist, Professor Henry Higgins. The clash of cultures sparks some of theatre's most witty dialogue and wonderful songs.

Headlining the new company are acclaimed performer (and 3 time Laurence Olivier Winner) Alex Jennings, as Professor Higgins and the young Australian star, Anna O'Byrne, as Eliza Doolittle. Joining them is an outstanding cast. Reg Livermore will play the role of Alfred P. Doolittle. Robyn Nevin will play Mrs. Higgins and Mark Vincent will play Freddy Eynsford-Hill. The role of Colonel Hugh Pickering will be played by Tony Llewellyn-Jones and Deidre Rubenstein will play Mrs. Pearce.

Associates of the original design team have come onboard for this production to help bring to life once again the stunning sets by Oliver Smith and glorious costumes by Cecil Beaton. Contributing to the creative team is Tony-award winning choreographer Christopher Gattelli,musical director Guy Simpson, lighting design by Broadway and West End legend Richard Pilbrow and sound design by Michael Waters.

My Fair Lady previews commenced at the Joan Sutherland Theatre, Sydney Opera House on August 30 followed by a gala opening night on September 6.

The production will travel to Brisbane's Lyric Theatre, QPAC from 12 March and Melbourne's Regent Theatre from 11 May, 2017. Tickets for the Brisbane and Melbourne season will go on sale in October. For more information, visit myfairladymusical.com.au.
