Looking for something delicious to entertain and satisfy the senses this Easter? It’s business as usual for the cast and crew of Lerner & Loewe’s My Fair Lady who are offering the perfect guilt free Easter treat with shows right across the holiday weekend.
Directed by stage and screen legend Julie Andrews the show is currently playing at QPAC’s Lyric Theatre but only until April 30 when it will relocate to Melbourne. My Fair Lady received rave reviews for the premiere season at Sydney’s Opera House last year and has been doing the same since arriving in Brisbane.

Producers John Frost and Opera Australia’s Lyndon Terracini are both proud and excited about this stellar cast led by acclaimed theatre, film and television actor Charles Edwards, as Professor Higgins, alongside young star Anna O’Byrne as Eliza Doolittle, Reg Livermore who plays the role of Alfred P. Doolittle, Robyn Nevin as Mrs. Higgins and Mark Vincent as Freddy Eynsford-Hill. The role of Colonel Hugh Pickering is played by Tony Llewellyn-Jones and Deidre Rubenstein is in the role of Mrs. Pearce.
Associates of the original design team joined together to help bring the stunning sets by Oliver Smith and glorious costumes by Cecil Beaton to life again. Contributing to the creative team is Tony-award winning choreographer Christopher Gattelli, costume recreation John David Ridge, musical director Guy Simpson, lighting design by Broadway and West End legend Richard Pilbrow and sound design by Michael Waters.
This beloved musical which took the world by storm, tells the tale of a Cockney flower girl named Eliza Doolittle whose world was forever changed by the brilliant and demanding phoneticist, Henry Higgins. The clash of cultures sparks some of theatre’s most witty dialogue and wonderful songs including Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?, On The Street Where You Live, I Could Have Danced All Night and Get Me to the Church on Time.
