Today in 1976, the first Broadway revival of My Fair Lady opened at the St. James Theatre, where it ran for 377 performances. My Fair Lady is a musical based upon George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion and with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe.

10) BWW Exclusive Blog: CLYBOURNE PARK Behind the Scenes: Day 5 (Part 2)
by Clybourne Park - March 25, 2012

As I arrive, things in the Walter Kerr Theatre seem fairly at ease. The team is joking and bantering across the house, and the actors mill about comfortably. But, work is happening fervently all around me. Between acts, the play travels 50 years in a 15 minute intermission, and the crew is busy dressing the not-quite-dry set. Will the sanding (and the noise that comes with it) be done in time for the run? And the milling actors are not shy with their questions for playwright Bruce Norris, or director Pam MacKinnon.

13) BWW Exclusive Blog: CLYBOURNE PARK Behind the Scenes: Day Six
by Clybourne Park - March 25, 2012

Watching the final dress, I could not help but feel that I had played some role in this production—even just by doing a tiny bit of press—and I feel that sense of community that comes with working on and rooting for a show. Even after I had already seen most of the first act, and read the entire play, I was still moved by this piece, laughing at the jokes and being moved by its message and the questions it raises. I cannot wait to go back to Clybourne Park with my friends, and to watch more audiences be affected by this powerful work. (more...)
