We promised it back in November, and now the time has come. One of the most popular musicals of all time is coming to Malta this February, as FM Theatre presents ‘My Fair Lady’ to celebrate the company’s 20th anniversary. Famed for songs such as ‘Just You Wait’ and ‘I Could Have Danced All Night’, ‘My Fair Lady’ is bound to be a hit.
Directed by Denise Mulholland and starring Maxine Aquilina as Eliza Doolittle, Antony Edridge as Henry Higgins, Edward Mercieca as Col. Pickering, Thomas Camilleri as Freddy Eynsford-Hill, and Alan Paris as Alfie Doolittle, this charming musical tells the tale of a Cockney flower girl who takes speech lessons from professor Henry Higgins, a phoneticist, so that she may gain popularity points among the upper class. However, with each lady-skill she develops, Eliza’s ambition grows.
