Update for My Fair Lady at the London Coliseum
It's great when the rumours turn out to be true. And it's particularly great when they're about a show with a history like this one. Not only is My Fair Lady a musical classic that has delighted audiences for more than 100 years. This particular production is a critically acclaimed show directed by the legendary Bartlett Sher, and it is the winner of a multitude of awards.
Who's involved in My Fair Lady?
When will you experience the first major West End revival of My Fair Lady for 21 years? The fun kicks off from 7th May '22, the opening night is on 18th May, and tickets go on sale from 23rd November 2021. Widely loved as a 'sublime' version of the Lerner and Lowe, Sher himself is thrilled at the news. In his words, “Getting a chance to revisit Shaw's extraordinary story of class and privilege in a new age, and especially for London audiences, is a rare and special event. And I am also thrilled to be back at the ENO and the Coliseum, a perfect space for this epic musical.”
