Romantic comedies are founded on the notion that opposites attract, such as the detective who falls for a jewel thief or the disenchanted mercenary who pines over a VHS box of Pretty Woman. Savor the sweetness of star-crossing with this GrouponLive deal to see My Fair Lady at the Russell Hill Rogers Theater inside the San Pedro Playhouse. For $24, you get two tickets for best-available seating (up to a $50 value). This Groupon is valid for any performance from Friday, March 16, to Saturday, April 14. Shows take place Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2:30 p.m., with no show on Sunday, April 8.
Lerner and Loewe’s six-time Tony Award–winning Broadway musical My Fair Lady adapts George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion into the tale of snooty phonetics professor Henry Higgins, who makes a wager that he can transform cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle into an upstanding member of high society. As Higgins comically struggles to supplant Eliza’s chimney-sweep accent and guttural demeanor for fancy savoir-faire, a romance unfolds proving that love conquers all forms of enunciation. Audiences waltz with their armrests as classic show tunes such as “I Could Have Danced All Night” and “On the Street Where You Live” stake their claim in memory banks for future shower serenades.
