The original production, one of the most distinguished in the history of the musical theater, was directed by Moss Hart. When My Fair Lady closed on September 29, 1962, it had played 2,717 performances, more than any other musical up to that time.

ALAN JAY LERNER (Book and Lyrics) wrote some of America’s best loved and enduring stage and movie musicals with Frederick Loewe over a period of more than 25 years: Life of the Party, What’s Up, The Day Before Spring, Brigadoon, Paint Your Wagon, My Fair Lady, Camelot and Gigi. He also wrote Love Life with Kurt Weill, On a Clear Day You Can See Forever and Carmelina with Burton Lane, Coco with Andre Previn, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with Leonard Bernstein and Dance a Little Closer with Charles Strouse. He wrote the libretto and/or lyrics for the following films: An American in Paris, Gigi, The Little Prince, Royal Wedding and film versions of his plays. He wrote two books: The Street Where I Live and The Musical Theatre: A Celebration. During his life he received multiple Tonys, Oscars, Grammys and Golden Globes and a Kennedy Center Honor. Mr. Lerner died in 1986.
FREDERICK LOEWE (Music), a classically trained musician, wrote the scores for some of America’s most memorable musicals including My Fair Lady, Camelot, Brigadoon, Paint Your Wagon and Gigi. Among his most famous songs with lyricist- partner Alan Jay Lerner are “Almost Like Being in Love,” “I Could Have Danced All Night” and “Thank Heaven for Little Girls.” A musical prodigy, Loewe was born in Berlin in 1901 and, at 13, was the youngest piano soloist to play with the Berlin Philharmonic. His popular song “Katrina,” written when he was 15, sold more than a million copies across Europe. Struggling to find work on Broadway after arriving in the U.S. in 1924, Loewe worked at such odd jobs as cow punching, boxing and accompanying silent films on the piano. He wrote with several other lyricists until approaching Lerner at New York’s Lambs Club in 1942 about collaborating on a show—thus beginning one of Broadway’s most extraordinary partnerships. The recipient of multiple Tony and Academy awards, Loewe died in Palm Springs in 1988.
