She's back! Nottingham Operatic Society are thrilled to bring a brand new production of Lerner and Loewe’s My Fair Lady to Nottingham Theatre Royal in 2017.

Described by the New York Times as "One of the best musicals of the century", this Cinderella story of the transformation of the Cockney flower girl, Eliza Dolittle by the pompous Professor Henry Higgins continues to entrance audiences worldwide with its perfect blend of warmth, humour and glamour.

The musical's 1956 Broadway production was an enormous success, setting a record for the longest run of any major musical theatre production in history. It was followed by a hit London production, the film version with Audrey Hepburn, and several revivals.

The show features some of Lerner & Loewe's best songs, including 'Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?', 'The Rain in Spain', 'On The Street Where You Live', 'I Could Have Danced All Night' and 'Get Me to the Church on Time'.

With spectacular sets, glorious costumes and a full orchestra, this looks set to be one of the theatre highlights of 2017. Book early to get the best seats in the house.

Book and Lyrics by ALAN JAY LERNER music by FREDERICK LOEWE
Adapted from George Bernard Shaw’s Play and Gabriel Pascal’s Motion Picture “PYGMALION”
Original Production Directed by Moss Hart

MY FAIR LADY is presented by arrangement with MusicScope and Stage Musicals of New Yo

I saw a superb show this afternoon at the Theatre Royal, Nottingham, by The Nottingham Operatic Society, with stunning large scale song and dance routines, and with an unforgettable music score by Lerner and Lowe , and at 3 hours long it was one of the best musicals I have seen at the Royal. It is that good it deserves to be in the West End. It also had brilliant scene changes. If there is anyone who has attended the show today and feels the same way as I do then I would like to hear from you. Other shows at the Theatre Royal which were superb this year include WEST SIDE STORY, FUNNY GIRL, and CRAZY FOR YOU. David Lawson Cutts.

My wife and I regularly attend musicals at the Theatre Royal We have been to 3 in the last month. Crazy for You, Beautiful the Carole King musical and no My Fair Lady. As much as we enjoyed the first two the production of My Fair Lady was amazing. It really is unbelievable how amateur performers can produce such quality. Simon Theobold was magnificent as Henry Higgins as was Rob Harrison[Pickering) and Ian Pottage( Alfred Doolittle). The performance of Katie Taylor as Eliza though was the best we have ever seen(Yes including Audrey Hepburn and Julie Andrews) This wonderful actress has perfect timing and a voice to die for. Firstly belting out Cockney numbers such as Wouldn't it be loverley and just you wait to a wonderful almost operatic rendition of I could have danced all night was an absolute joy. Other cast members with their enthusiastic talents made this a production to remember and this talented Society can be very proud of themselves.

Hello Vic, many thanks for your message received this morning. You are correct in every way regarding My Fair Lady and the cast sang note perfect throughout. Katie Taylor has a superb voice , and Simon Theobald, as Higgins also , unlike Rex Harrison who talked his way through the songs. I can't believe that Nottingham Operatic Society are an amateur group, as I think this production deserves to be in the West End. It helps though when the show has a music score by Lerner & Lowe, and conducted by the orchestra note perfect. The sets were also excellent with superb scene changes. I have seen 4 shows at the Theatre Royal this year, WEST SIDE STORY, FUNNY GIRL, CRAZY FOR YOU, and MY FAIR LADY. Until I saw this show this week, CRAZY FOR YOU was the best show I had seen during 2017. MY FAIR LADY has out shone all of them. With all best wishes David Lawson Cutts .
