One of the greatest Broadway musicals of all time tells the story of a lowly Cockney flower girl as she transforms into a sophisticated lady—with the help of a linguistics teacher who will get a bit more than he bargained for. This beloved family musical boasts a score of cherished classic songs like, “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly,” “I Could Have Danced All Night” and “On The Street Where You Live!”
