Even though I hate the ending, I LOVE this play. I get the songs stuck in my head all the freaking time. This is also the only move I love Rex Harrison in. ( )

I had seen this story on movie. The girl who name is Eliza speaks dialect English. Dr. Higgins tried to her to speak Standard English. Then she becomes nice lady.
I like her character very much because no matter how hard thins were, she didn’t give up! I think she is really strong women. I want to be women like her. ( )

This is the story that Eliza Doolittle – a young London woman who is flower-seller with a very strong London accent – is educated for being a lady by Professor Higgins. This book was so interesting! But this was originally a musical. Listening to songs, I’ll be able to understand how great it is more. I would like to see it. ( )

I chose this book because I love Audrey Hepburn.
There are many pictures of seans of the movie, so I could have enjoyed seeing them.
But I think if I had seen the movie or play, I could have enjoyed more because there are some songs in this story.
In the book, words of songs are written, but you can't know the merody.
And the story itself, it is not so good, not so bad. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0140013644, Paperback)

Sparkling with wit, wisdom and wonderful songs including, "I Could Have Danced All Night", "Wouldn't It Be Loverly" and "Get Me To The Church On Time", the musical play based on Bernard Shaw's "Pygmalion" has been delighting audiences since it was first performed in the 1950s. When overbearing Professor Higgins stumbles on flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, in Covent Garden he recognizes that her hideous vowels and forgotten consonants are all that separate her from the upper classes. Higgins wagers that he can pass her off as a Duchess in a matter of weeks. But what will become of Eliza when the bet is over? This edition of "My Fair Lady" includes the complete script and a selection of black and white stills from the Oscar-winning film starring Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison.

Outside Covent Garden on a rainy evening in 1912, cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, meets linguistic expert Henry Higgins. Higgins, in turn, bets with his companion, Colonel Pickering, that, within six months, he could transform Eliza into a proper lady, simply by teaching her proper English. The next morning, face and hands freshly scrubbed, Eliza presents herself on Higgins' doorstep, ready and willing to be turned into a lady.… (more)
