The classic, multi Oscar-winning, Broadway adaptation about egotistical linguist Professor Henry Higgins (Harrison) who bets his friend, Colonel Hugh Pickering (Hyde-White), that he can transform Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle (Hepburn) in time for an important society ball. His gamble could pay off--but the spirited Eliza is more of a handful than the Professor could have predicted. As she slowly becomes more refined, and less reliant upon him, Higgins realizes, to his confusion, that he can’t live without her.
Charmingly witty musical. Filled with true toe-tapping numbers and boasting rich production values... Full review.
