Amy Schumer Gets All The LOLs Roasting Sexist 'My Fair Lady' Plot
You remember the 'My Fair Lady' plot, right? Girl meets mansplainer, chaos ensues?
Amy Schumer does, and she roasted the play when introducing the first Tony nominee for best revival of a musical.
“It tells the story of a scruffy flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, who is transformed by Henry Higgins, a man-splaining expert on dialects.”
Famed for pointing out gender inequality in hilarious 'Inside Amy Schumer' sketches and movies like 'Trainwreck' and 'I Feel Pretty', the comedian couldn’t help but point out the 1956 production's links to 2018.
“This interpretation celebrates Eliza’s growing self-confidence and highlights equal rights for women. Because we actually don’t have that,” Schumer said.
Schumer added, “In Eliza’s words, ‘The difference between a lady and a flower girl is not how she behaves, but how she is treated.”
The feminist revival scored 10 Tony nominations, including duo acting nods for Harry Hadden-Paton (Henry Higgins) and Lauren Ambrose (Eliza).
What with Irish abortion votes, unequal pay and Donald Trump's smug little face, the fight continues. Well said, Amy, and well done, 'My Fair Lady'.
