1956: The Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe musical "My Fair Lady" opens on Broadway. Based on George Bernard Shaw's novel "Pygmalion" and starring Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews, the production was a hit, setting what was then the record for the longest run of any major musical theater production in history. It was followed by a hit London production, the 1964 film version starring Harrison and Audrey Hepburn, and numerous revivals.
