Like South Pacific in Concert, the dialogue of My Fair Lady will be pared down and sets and costuming minimal, creating a more streamlined presentation of the beloved story of one woman's transformation from Tottenham Court Road flower vendor to proper lady. It is being presented in addition to ICCT's regular season.
