OK, here's a good thing that happened on the Ides of March. Fifty years ago today My Fair Lady premiered on Broadway. It ran for 2,717 performances, by the way. As much as I appreciate Audrey Hepburn, she was no Julie Andrews where Eliza was concerned. Fie on Jack Warner for denying generations the chance to see Julie's landmark performance!
Give it up for Julie, Rex, and the gang today. Flip through your LPs until you get to the iconic album cover with Al Hirschfield's drawing and, with a little bit of luck, you'll get to enjoy one of the most perfect cast recordings of all time. Loverly!
