CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
Based on George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion. Lerner and Loewe's multi-award winning musical became one of the greatest successes of the New York and London stages, and paved the way for the hugely popular film version in 1964. Henry Higgins, an opinionated linguistics professor and confirmed bachelor, makes a wager with a colleague that within six months he can transform a cockney flower seller, Eliza Doolittle, into a lady who can take her place in high society. He wins the bet, but doesn't bargain for the profound effect she has on his life. The musical includes such hits as 'I Could Have Danced All Night' and 'On The Street Where You Live'.Performers Helena Blackman, Mark Inscoe, Cornelius Clarke, Hugh Osborne, Tom Sterling, Gay Soper.
