I just figured out that last Monday (May 20th) was 'Liza Doolittle Day! (For reference, watch this.) How on earth did I let this go past with no mention? That's terrible. That I didn't realize I mean, not that it's a day to celebrate 'Liza Doolittle!!
So this is simply me noting the day that celebrates a character from one of my favorite musicals. My first experience with this story was middle school. Our high school would put on a musical every spring and I don't think I'll ever forget watching this one. I fell in love with the story and the outfits and the singing and the whole nine yards! Imagine my excitement when I realized that there was a movie! :D
I haven't watched it in a while, but I do love it. As much as I love it though, I think my favorite version will always by the one from school. Because it was my introduction to a wonderful musical, plus the girl who played Eliza had a beautiful voice and was a wonderful actress. She will always be "my" Eliza. I do not remember her name now, but I do remember her face. And I absolutely remember how I felt the day I first watched it! I think I begged my mother to let me go watch it two or three more times just because I loved it so much. I'm sure I was singing the songs for days afterwards and probably annoying my family. :D
And for your further enjoyment, this is one of the songs I remember singing a lot:
Anyway, happy belated 'Liza Doolittle Day! :)
