My Fair Lady

"On this day in 1956 Lerner and Lowe's musical My Fair Lady began its long time run on Broadway."

Ha. Just yesterday morning, I sang some line from the musical, and Milady asked what that was from. I said, must be time to watch My Fair Lady again. For poor Julie Andrews's ripped-off singing.

My folks saw the play, I think. Growing up, I recall the odd LP album cover, by Hershfeld - I think that's the name - cartoonist who always worked his daughter Nina's name into his work. Didn't know what MFL was about until I saw the movie.

One of very few musicals I can tolerate. This, Fiddler, and, um... hm, that's about it.

Musical Morning, Glories!
