AN IN-PERSON CONVERSATION WITH MY FAIR LADY:
ONE-ON-ONE WITH SALLY ANN HOWES
DESCRIPTION: Sally Ann Howes, best known for her role as Truly Scrumptious in the movie musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, has had a fascinating life and career. The daughter of one of England’s most popular variety hall stars, Howes began acting in British films when she was 13. By the time she replaced Julie Andrews on Broadway in My Fair Lady, she was already a star of stage and screen in Great Britain. She went on to star on Broadway in Brigadoon, What Makes Sammy Run?, and the short-lived Kwamina, a daring musical about an interracial romance. Other acclaimed performances include Desiree Armfeldt in New York City Opera’s production of A Little Night Music, and – bringing things full circle – Mrs. Higgins in a recent national tour of My Fair Lady. This personal interview with Ms. Howe will illuminate her eventful life and career, and selected video of some of her performances will be shown.
