Village Theatre is pleased to announce that its production of “My Fair Lady” will be extended for a week due to popular demand, with seven additional performances added to its Everett run. The musical, which runs through January 3, 2016 in Issaquah before moving to Everett, will now run from January 8 to February 7, 2016 at the Everett Performing Arts Center.
“My Fair Lady,” the Lerner and Loewe classic adapted from George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, tells the story of a lowly Cockney flower girl and her unlikely run-in with a linguistics teacher who wagers he can transform her into a proper lady. Village Theatre’s production is directed by Issaquah native Brian Yorkey, who is known for writing the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical “Next to Normal” and the recent Broadway hit “If/Then.” Yorkey’s “My Fair Lady,” with local actors Allison Standley and Mark Anders in the roles of Eliza Doolittle and Professor Higgins, respectively, has been met with overwhelming praise from critics and audiences alike. “It’s simply a stellar production in every way,” writes Jay Irwin for Broadway World. “Whether you’re a newbie to the show or a die-hard fan, you’re bound to have a wonderful time.”
