the grand budapest hotel

My Fair Lady. Wouldn’t it be lovely to see a live production of this show? Especially this production directed by Bartlett Sher, which the New York Times called “thrilling, glorious and better than it ever was?” The story of Eliza Doolittle the flower seller and Henry Higgins the condescending linguistics professor was one of my favorite movies as a kid. So count your blessing that, rather than hearing my attempt at a cockney accent belting out “The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain!” like my poor mother did for years, you have a chance to see the professionals do it over at Broadway in Tucson. Various times Wednesday, Jan. 5, through Sunday, Jan. 9. Centennial Hall, 1020 E. University Blvd. $25 to $100.
