Merging The Memory And The Modern In My Fair Lady

Two productions, one in Sydney, Australia and one in Michigan, USA, merge the memory of past productions with the modern design approach in My Fair Lady.

It’s been 60 years since Julie Andrews transformed from a flower girl into a sophisticated woman in My Fair Lady. This year, two productions aimed to pay homage to the original, with a hat tip to later Broadway revivals and an appreciation of audience expectations today. 

Last summer, a production ran in a small theatre in Dexter, Michigan, directed by the designer who had come to the United States from England in 1956 because of his fair lady.
