My Fair Lady


This production of My Fair Lady opened at the National Theatre on the South Bank on 15 March 2001. In its three theatres on the South Bank in London, the National Theatre presents a mix of new plays and classics, with seven or eight productions playing at any one time. At its Studio, the National has a space for research and development for the NT's stages and the theatre as a whole. Through NT Education, tomorrow's audiences are addressed. With an extensive program of Platform performances, backstage tours, foyer music, exhibitions, and outdoor entertainment the National recognizes that the theatre doesn't begin and end with the rise and fall of the curtain. And by touring, it shares its work with audiences in the UK and abroad. The plays currently or soon to be seen at the National include Bernard Shaw's Saint Joan, Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing, NoŽl Coward's Present Laughter, Harold Pinter's The Hothouse, Eugene O'Neill's The Emperor Jones, Ayub Khan-Din's Rafta, RaftaÖ, and War Horse, an adaptation by Nick Stafford of Michael Morpurgo's novel. Alan Bennett's The History Boys is on tour around the UK from September to November 2007, and will then be at Wyndham's Theatre in the West End. The National has recently been in New York with The History Boys, Primo with Antony Sher, Martin McDonagh's The Pillowman, and Matthew Bourne's Play Without Words.
