A 'My Fair Lady' in Paris

Audrey Hepburn won the hearts of cinema-goers as Eliza Doolittle in the Hollywood film "My Fair Lady". Now an all-English-language cast is hoping to woo Parisian audiences with their rendition at the capital’s Châtelet theatre. Our reporter finds out how the authentically Cockney version is going down with French theatre-goers.

We’re also checking out the sumptuous revival of Rudolf Nureyev’s 1989 re-working of The Sleeping Beauty.
