The Lincoln Centre Theatre’s critically acclaimed, multi-award-winning production of My Fair Lady comes to London in Summer 2022, the first major West End revival of Lerner & Loewe’s much-loved musical for 21 years.

My Fair Lady tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor who is determined to transform her into his idea of a “proper lady”. But who is really being transformed?

Amara Okereke will star as Eliza Doolittle. Okereke was recently seen in the Almeida’s acclaimed production of Spring Awakening, and she won the Stage Debut Award for her performance as Cosette in Les Misérables. She will be joined by Harry Hadden-Paton who reprises his performance as Henry Higgins for which he received Tony and Grammy award nominations

Stage legend Dame Vanessa Redgrave will play Mrs Higgins, returning to the West End stage for the first time since her appearance in The Inheritance in 2018.

Joining her will be Maureen Beattie who will play Mrs Pearce, Sharif Afifi who will play Freddie Eynesford-Hill, Stephen K Amos who will play Alfred P. Doolittle and Malcolm Sinclair who will play Colonel Pickering.

Directed by Bartlett Sher, this sublime production will feature the English National Opera orchestra playing Frederick Loewe’s ravishing score and a book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner. My Fair Lady boasts a score including the classic songs I Could Have Danced All NightGet Me to the Church on TimeWouldn’t It Be LoverlyOn the Street Where You LiveThe Rain in Spain, and I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face.
