“Court Theatre’s brilliant, stripped-down reinterpretation gives the material new life, dispensing with large chorus numbers and lavish design to focus on the show’s Shavian soul… Thanks to director Gary Griffin’s superb cast and ingenious interpretive choices, the Shaw-Lerner script was never funnier, smarter, or more touching, and the Lerner-Loewe score (rearranged for two pianos by music director Tom Murray) reveals emotional depths ignored in more traditional productions. ” -Reader

Court produces one of America’s most beloved musicals, based on George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion. In keeping with Court Theatre’s commitment to stage intimate versions of the classics, we feature a two-piano rendition of My Fair Lady. Court Theatre Resident Artist Kate Fry stars as Eliza Doolittle.
