Lincoln Center Theater's Broadway revival of My Fair Lady features one of the most ambitious sets currently seen on the Main Stem, and now you can get a detailed look at the centerpiece of Michael Yeargan’s design.
Harry Hadden-Paton, nominated for a Tony last year for his performance as Professor Henry Higgins, offers a video tour of his giant onstage home above.
Beginning in Higgins’ study (“what we affectionately call the mancave of the patriarchy”), Higgins points out the working machines and linguistic models, as well as hidden photographs and secret cues embedded in the set. In the foyer, Hadden-Paton reveals the hidden onstage quick-change booth; he also reveals the extra layers of walls that help the bathroom become a secondary practice room for Eliza.
Hadden-Paton will star as Higgins through July 6. Laura Benanti stars as Eliza Doolittle through July 7. My Fair Lady recently welcomed two new cast members: Christian Dante White as Freddy Eynsford-Hill and Danny Burstein as Alfred P. Doolittle. The cast also features Rosemary Harris as Mrs. Higgins, Allan Corduner as Colonel Pickering, Clarke Thorell as Professor Zoltan Karpathy, and Linda Mugleston as Mrs. Pearce.
Directed by Tony winner Bartlett Sher, the production features choreography by Christopher Gattelli, original musical arrangements by Robert Russell Bennett and Phil Lang, dance arrangements by Trude Rittman, musical direction by Ted Sperling, scenic design by Yeargan, costume design by Catherine Zuber, lighting design by Donald Holder, sound design by Marc Salzberg, hair and wig design by Tom Watson, and casting by Telsey + Company.
