There’s been speculation about a My Fair Lady revival for years. Collin Firth was attached at one time, before being allegedly replaced by Ralph Fiennes. Now it seems the Oscar winner’s returned to the project. James Nederlander Sr. said that Colin Firth’s signed on but they still need to cast Eliza Doolittle. Anne Hathaway and Carey Mulligan are both circling the part. I don’t know about you, but this revival looks insanely good. This is the type of cast a My Fair Lady movie would get. A live stage show with some of the most talented actors living (yeah, LIVING) playing some of the most beloved parts in musical theater? It sounds like it’s going to be good. The revival was supposed to open in 2014 but obviously, that’s long since past. Now, their looking at putting the show in Broadway’s next season. We’re insanely excited for this project, if it gets off the ground. This could take years to bring to New York, but we’ll be patient. The creative team (rumored to be directed by Tony winner Bartlett Sher) isn’t rushing this production. They’re going to get it right. And when it does come to Broadway (whenever that may be), it’s going to be legendary. This could be the best musical revival of the decade. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
