The musical “My Fair Lady” is based on the text of the theater play “Pygmalion” written by George Bernard Shaw, whose main character is a figure of the Greek mythology, Pygmalion, who felt in love with a sculpture that he created, and the sculpture came to life. Shaw wrote the play in 1912, and the premiere took place at Hofburg Theatre from Vienna, on October 16, 1913.

Considered today one of the most long-lived and successful musicals, “My Fair Lady”’s world premiere took place on Broadway (New York) on March 15, 1956, and on West End (London) two years later, becoming a legend in the world of the music shows.

The Broadway show has 7 Tony Awards in its portfolio (6 of them for the original version), including “The Best Musical” and “The Best Direction”, a Theatre World Award, 5 Olivier Awards (for the London reprise in 2001), and more than 2,700 performances in total, for the original production – an absolute record for those times.

The current interpretation of the show was staged for the first time in 2016, on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the musical’s world premiere; the performance was successful and appreciated by both the audience and the critics.
