‘My Fair Lady’ Brings Lerner and Loewe to Lyric Opera

Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins are two of the most memorable duos in musical theater.

When Lerner and Loewe’s “My Fair Lady” premiered on Broadway in 1956 they were famously played by Julie Andrews and Rex Harrison.

Wednesday, we’re joined by the latest Eliza and Henry: Lisa O’Hare and Richard Grant, who star in Lyric Opera’s spring musical, “My Fair Lady.”

Performances begin at the Civic Opera House on April 28 and run through May 21.
