Producers of the much anticipated forthcoming revival of the classic musical My Fair Lady at the London Coliseum have finally announced the full cast for the show. The new production, which was first directed by Bartlett Sher on Broadway back in 2018, is set to run from May 7th to August 27th, with the official opening night scheduled for May 18th. Tickets to My Fair Lady are currently on sale.
Newly announced members of the cast include the BAFTA award-winner Stephen K. Amos who will star as Alfred P. Doolittle and Olivier-nominee Malcolm Sinclair in the role of Colonel Pickering. The full cast will be completed by Paul Westwood, Dammi Aregbeshola, Bernadette Bangura, Adam Vaughan, Joseph Claus, Barry Drummond, Jordan Crouch, John Stacey, Sinead Kenny, Jamie Cruttenden, Tom Ping, Francessca Daniella-Baker, Heather Jackson, Bethany Huckle, Emma Johnson, Charlotte Kennedy, Jenny Legg, Tom Liggins, Rebekah Lowings, Dominique Planter, Joseph Poulton, Carl Patrick, Joshua Steel, Oliver Tester, and Annie Wensak.

The plot of My Fair Lady is based on the George Bernard Shaw play, Pygmalion, and follows the fortunes of Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle as she is transformed with Professor Henry Higgins's guidance into a dignified lady. Sher's production of the classic musical received 10 Tony Award nominations from its run on Broadway and retains all of the instantly recognisable classic songs from Frederick Loewe and Alan Jay Lerner's musical score including "Get Me to the Church on Time" and "Wouldn't It Be Loverly".
Performances of My Fair Lady will run from May 7th 2022 at the London Coliseum.
