Previewing on March 15 and officially opening on April 19, a Broadway classic “My Fair Lady” will once again take the hearts of audience members!
The well-known piece will feature Broadway vets as well as up-and-coming performers. But, how well do you already know these actors and actresses?
Lauren Ambrose as Eliza Doolittle
Lauren Ambrose boasts pretty impressive professional theatre credits including Ophelia in an off-Broadway Hamlet, Juliet in an off-broadway Romeo and Juliet (off Broadway), Hennie Berger in an Awake and Sing! revival (Broadway) and Queen Marie in an Exit the King revival (also Broadway). With two Emmy nominations under her belt, you can bet Lauren will be a perfect fit for the leading lady!
Harry Hadden-Paton as Henry Higgins
With My Fair Lady being Harry’s Broadway debut, much is expected of him to live up to Rex Harrison’s Oscar-winning portrayal of the “pompous phonetics professor.” Harry has quite the screen background, however, with his recent roles including Martin Charteris on Netflix’s The Crown, Rupert in About Time and Bertie Pelham in Downton Abbey. Harry will make an excellent Henry Higgins!
Norbert Leo Butz as Alfred P. Doolittle
Norbert Leo Butz promises to do an outstanding job as Eliza’s father in this rendition of My Fair Lady. He has phenomenal prior roles, including Fiyero in Wicked (original Broadway cast), understudying and replacing both Rodger and Mark in 1996’s Rent, as well as starring in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Big Fish. Norbert is perfect for the role and is sure to add to a great production!
Diana Rigg as Mrs. Higgins
Diana Rigg is an actress with worlds of experience, especially considering she’s been active on the Broadway scene since 1971. However, stage is not Diana’s only forte: she has also starred in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969) and as well as Game Of Thrones (Olenna Tyrell)! From The Misanthrope (1975), to Love Letters (2014), to famous screen productions, Diana is a respectable showbiz veteran!
Jordan Donica as Freddy Eynsford-Hill
Young Jordan Donica will take on the role of Eliza’s love interest in this revival as Freddy Eynsford-Hill! Jordan has performed Broadway’s Raoul in Phantom of the Opera and Jefferson/Lafayette in the Hamilton tour!
