Directed by Bartlett Sher, the Lincoln Center Theater production previously ran on Broadway in 2018 where it picked up ten Tony Award nominations.

Bartlett Sher said: “Getting a chance to revisit Shaw’s extraordinary story of class and privilege in a new age, and especially for London audiences, is a rare and special event.

“And I am also thrilled to be back at the ENO and the Coliseum, a perfect space for this epic musical.”

The production has sets by Michael Yeargan, costumes by Catherine Zuber, lighting by Donald Holder, sound by Marc Salzberg, original musical arrangements by Robert Russell Bennett and Phil Lang, and dance arrangements by Trude Rittmann.

Casting is to be confirmed.

My Fair Lady tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor who is determined to transform her into his idea of a “proper lady”. But who is really being transformed?

With a book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe, My Fair Lady boasts a score including the classic songs I Could Have Danced All Night, Get Me to the Church on Time, Wouldn’t It Be Loverly, On the Street Where You Live, The Rain in Spain and I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face.

James L. Nederlander, Jamie Wilson, Hunter Arnold, Playful Productions and the English National Opera present the production which is the first major West End revival of the show for 21 years.

The musical first premiered on Broadway in 1956, winning six Tonys, followed by a London premiere two years later.
