Based on George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion, My Fair Lady set a record for the longest run of any show on Broadway with its notable 1956 Broadway production starring Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews. Often referred to as "the perfect musical", the piece was adapted into the popular 1964 American musical drama film starring Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle and Rex Harrison as Henry Higgins. A critical and commercial success, it won eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Director.
