Wednesday, 9/28, 1:30-3PM, Charles Troy Presents: The Creation of My Fair Lady

The ever-popular Charles Troy is back, this time to present on the creation of My Fair Lady in celebration of the Broadway show’s 60th anniversary! We’ll follow the creative path of this universally beloved show, often called the greatest musical of all time, from its beginnings as Shaw’s 1912 play Pygmalion and then as a popular 1938 film. Then we’ll learn how Lerner and Loewe managed to fashion this difficult material—an intellectual drawing room comedy—into such a stunning musical theatre triumph. This program will be held at the River Forest Community Center in partnership with Terry Zachata and New York Life.
