Audrey Hepburn is more ‘loverly’ than ever! To celebrate her birthday, Fathom Events and Paramount Pictures have announced the Academy Award-winning musical My Fair Lady will be coming back to select cinemas for a special two-day event, on June 13 and 16. Audiences for this exclusive, limited theatrical re-release will also be treated to the featurette Remembering Audrey, which pays tribute to the legendary star, with insight from two of those who knew her best—companion Robert Wolders, and her son, Sean Hepburn Ferrer.
My Fair Lady is a musical based on George Bernard Shaw’s 1913 play Pygmalion, with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe. The story concerns Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney flower girl who takes speech lessons from professor Henry Higgins, a phonetician, so that she may pass as a lady.
Winner of eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Director and Best Cinematography, My Fair Lady continues to dazzle the eyes, ears and hearts of audiences everywhere with its captivating story of a poor London flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, who is plucked out of obscurity and remade into a glamorous socialite. Based on the Broadway musical by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, My Fair Lady contains such indelible songs as “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “The Rain in Spain,” “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?” and “On the Street Where You Live.”
