Theater historian and storyteller Charles Troy documents the story behind the creation of one of the world’s most beloved musicals, Lerner and Loewe’s “My Fair Lady.” Follow a creative path beginning with George Bernard Shaw’s “Pygmalion” in 1912, a theatrical comedy that was produced as a motion picture in 1938. Then discover how Lerner and Loewe turned this complex material – an intellectual drawing-room comedy – into a stunning musical theater achievement. Charles Troy employs a seamless blend of recorded songs, original graphics, vintage photos, historic video, and scripted narrative to dramatize the stories of the American musical theater.

Wednesdays @ One events are made possible by a generous contribution from Colonial Cafe restaurants.
