Synopsis:

My Fair Lady (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/My_Fair_Lady_%28film%29) is a musical based upon George Bernard Shaw (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/George_Bernard_Shaw)‘s Pygmalion and with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Alan_Jay_Lerner) and music by Frederick Loewe (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Frederick_Loewe).

Premiering on Broadway (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Broadway_theatre) in 1956, My Fair Lady tells the story of the over-confident Professor Higgins and his attempts to use his skills as a phoneticist to transform a cockney girl, Eliza, into a proper-speaking lady. Higgins and his friend Colonel Pickering make great progress with the girl and even take her to the horse races and a grand ball. Nevertheless, they still treat Eliza as a mere experiment and not as a human being. When Eliza runs away, Higgins realizes that she is more than just an experiment; indeed he is in love with Eliza.
