Keep the Rain in Spain

We need dry nights for the Muny

Professor Henry Higgins is self-centered and a touch misogynistic — and he has trouble getting along with women. Can you believe it? Not surprisingly, he fixes the blame on women and concentrates on his work, which is the science of phonetics. When he meets Eliza, a Cockney flower girl with what he calls a "deliciously low" accent, Higgins bets a colleague that he can transform her into a proper lady just by coaching her in elocution. But can his plucky student teach him anything, like maybe how not to be such a pompous ass? In Lerner and Loewe's classic musical My Fair Lady, such things are not only possible, they happen in glorious song. The Muny in Forest Park (314-361-1900 or www.muny.org) continues its 90th season with what's been called "the perfect musical" at 8:15 p.m. Monday through Sunday (July 7 through July 13). Tickets are $9 to $64. PHOTO BY JIM HERREN
