This is how Julie Andrews chose My Fair Lady’s lead

Dame Julie Andrews brings her hit musical to Melbourne's Regent Theatre, complete with a glorious leading lady.

Dame Julie Andrews has been doting on My Fair Lady’s leading lady, Anna O’Byrne, in a new interview.

The English stage icon produces the stunning musical, having become the poster girl for the show ever since finding fame in the lead role of Eliza Doolittle when the show first opened.

Needless to say, Andrews would’ve had a lengthy check list when it came to finding the perfect Doolittle for the 60th Anniversary production in Australia.

Not alone in her love for Anna O’Byrne as Eliza Doolittle, My Fair Lady has received rave reviews across Oz.

‘Guaranteed to make you leave the theatre with a smile on your face and a song in your heart’ – Brisbane Times
