One of the most performed musicals in America; a classic musical adaption of Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw. With Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?, With a Little Bit of Luck, The Rain in Spain, I Could Have Danced All Night, On the Street Where You Live, Get Me to the Church on Time and I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face it’s no wonder everyone — not just Henry Higgins — falls in love with Eliza Doolittle.
Henry Higgins made a bet that if he could get Eliza Doolittle, a poor girl who sells flowers, to speak the English language properly, she would fit into the higher class. She fails on her trip to the Ascot races (although she does catch the attention of Freddy), but when she goes to the Embassy Ball, does so well that a speech professor proclaims her to be a Hungarian princess.
