My Fair Lady is considered by many to be the perfect musical. Derived from George Bernard Shaw's play Pygmalion, it tells the story of a professor who tries to transform a simple Cockney girl into a proper lady. When it opened on Broadway in 1956, it won six Tony Awards, including Best Musical. It's got songs like "Wouldn't It Be Lovely," "The Rain in Spain" and "On the Street Where You Live." See it outdoors in New Canaan's Waveny Park starting with a preview performance on Friday, the debut show of Summer Theatre of New Canaan's mainstage season.
