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 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.
