Life and times of a top musical

Have your say

A SPECIAL exhibition has opened in the foyer at The Crucible to accompany the theatre’s major Christmas production of My Fair Lady.

The displays have been put together by Sheffield University music expert Dr Dominic McHugh, and contain artefects from the show’s original runs on Broadway and in the West End.

“The exhibition contains rare items such as a copy of the iconic original Broadway cast recording signed by Julie Andrews, who was the star of the first production, posters of the Broadway production, and letters and documents,” said Dr McHugh. “It tells a strong story about the show’s gradual journey around the globe as it became the most successful musical of its day.”

Dr McHugh has drawn on his book Loverly: The Life and Times of My Fair Lady.
