My Fair Lady Coming to Gallo Center

BROADWAY MUSICAL ‘MY FAIR LADY’ ARRIVES AT THEGALLO CENTER FOR THE ARTS FEBRUARY 3-5

MODESTO, CA – (January 5, 2012) – Big League Productions Inc. presents a sparkling new production of the musical by which all others are measured, MY FAIR LADY, at the Gallo Center for the Arts in Modesto for four performances on Friday, February 3 at 8:00 PM, Saturday, February 4 at 2:00 and 8:00 PM, and Sunday, February 5 at 2:00 PM.

Tickets for this performance range from $39 to $99. A 15% discount is available for groups of 15 or more. For tickets or more information, visit www.galloarts.org or call (209) 338-2100.

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 Loverly?, 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 Londonproduction, a popular film version starring Audrey Hepburn-which won eight Academy Awards, and numerous revivals. It has been called “the perfect musical.”

MY FAIR LADY is part of the Boyett Petroleum Broadway series and is also sponsored by Foods by Del Monte and U.S. Bank. The Gallo Center for the Arts’ 2011-12 Premier Partner is Boyett Petroleum.
