Theater Classics, New and Reimagined

“Thrilling! Glorious and better than it ever was! A marvelous and transformative revival.”

— — THE NEW YORK TIMES, APRIL 19, 2018

Lincoln Center Theater is a cherished theatrical treasure in the heart of New York City’s Upper West Side. Thoughtfully placed in the architecturally iconic Lincoln Center, the Vivian Beaumont, Mitzie E. Newhouse and Claire Tow Theaters present imaginative revivals and premieres of important American plays.  Guided by the motto “Good Plays, Popular Prices”, LCT strives to keep admission prices reasonable and its doors open to all.

The most beloved musical of all time, Lerner & Loewe’s My Fair Lady opened at LCT’s Vivian Beaumont stage on Thursday, April 19, 2018.  Directed by Tony winner Bartlett Sher, the stellar cast – led by Lauren Ambrose, Harry Hadden-Paton, Norbert Leo Butz, and Diana Rigg,  – 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.” Alan Jay Lerner adapted the book of My Fair Lady from George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, a complex social comedy about class and gender.

The Foundation’s sponsorship of My Fair Lady follows previous support of LCT productions including The King and I, War Horse, Act One, Shakespeare’s Henry IV and King Lear, as well as Contact and The Clean House.
