World famous musical coming to Honeywell

Posted: Friday, October 21, 2011

Wabash Valley Music Association presents the musical My Fair Lady on Thursday, October 27 at 7 p.m.  Based on the 1912 play “Pygmalion” by George Bernard Shaw, the play has been successfully transformed over the years into a book, movie and musical.

Based on George Bernard Shaw’s 1912 play Pygmalion, the musical features a professor of phonetics making a bet he can train a bedraggled Cockney flower girl to pass for a duchess.  With music and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, the musical includes long-time favorites such as "Wouldn't It Be Loverly?," "The Rain in Spain," and "I Could Have Danced All Night."

The 1956 Broadway hit smashed records for the longest running musical in theatre production history.  Its success continued when it was carried over the pond and debuted in London, and then again when it was produced into a film.  Tickets are $25, $35, and $45 and may be purchased at the box office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, by calling (260) 563-1102 or visiting www.honeywellcenter.org.
