Saroyan TheatreBroadway In Fresno presents a sparkling new production of the musical by which all others are measured: My Fair Lady. Based on Shaw's play and Pascal's movie Pygmalion, with book music and lyrics by Lerner and Loewe, My Fair Lady is triumphant. With "Wouldn't It Be Lovely?," "With a Little Bit of Luck," "The Rain in Spain," "I Could Have Danced All Night," "On the Street Where You Live," "Get Me to the Church on Time" and "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face," it's no wonder everyone -- not just Henry Higgins -- falls in love with Eliza Doolittle.The show's 1956 Broadway production was a smash hit, setting a new record for the longest run of any major theatre production in history. It was followed by a hit London production, a popular film version starring Audrey Hepburn, which won eight Academy Awards, and numerous revivals. My Fair Lady has been called "the perfect musical."Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein
