My Fair Lady performed by Clear Space Theatre Company

Friday – Saturday 7:00 p.m.; Sunday 3:00 p.m.
The classic story of Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle and Professor Henry Higgins is brought to life in a re-imagined, intimate production. A musical adaptation of George Bernard Shaw’s “Pygmalion,” “My Fair Lady” follows Higgins as he attempts to turn Eliza into a proper English lady through speech lessons, and the line between learning and learning to love becomes increasingly blurred. A show and music you know and love by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, Clear Space brings this timeless musical right to “The Street Where You Live.” For more information, visit http://ow.ly/9EpV6 or call 302-227-2270.
