A DAY OUT – HASKINS GARDEN & CRAFT CENTRE with MY FAIR LADY
Thursday 19th January 2023
Firstly, visiting the popular Haskins Garden & Craft centre where there is time to enjoy the attractions and lunch of your choice. This afternoon, we visit Southampton’s Mayflower Theatre for the matinee performance of My Fair Lady.
The Lincoln Center Theatre’s critically acclaimed, multi-award-winning production comes direct from a West End run. This sumptuous production, featuring over 30 members of cast on stage and a full orchestra, is the first major revival of Lerner & Loewe’s much-loved musical on tour for over 15 years and a truly loverly way to celebrate the theatre scene back in bloom! 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? Directed by Bartlett Sher (acclaimed for the recent Tony Award-winning productions of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s The King and I and South Pacific), this sublime production features Frederick Loewe’s ravishing score and a book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner. My Fair Lady includes the classic songs I Could Have Danced All Night, Get Me to the Church on Time, Wouldn’t It Be Loverly, On the Street Where You Live, The Rain in Spain, and I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face.
