  Claire Danes

Henry Higgins has his Eliza Doolittle. Or, rather Claire Danes has been cast as Eliza Doolittle opposite Jefferson Mays as Professor Henry Higgins in the fast approaching Roundabout Theatre Company's production of Pygmalion. The George Bernard Shaw classic will be at the American Airlines Theatre September 21-December 16, opening officially on October 18.

The show will be directed by David ( Journey's End) Grindley. Jonathan Fensom will do the sets and costumes, Jason Taylor the lights and Gregory Clarke the sound design.

Ms. Danes, will be making her Broadway debut. However, she has appeared on the New York stage at P.S. 122 in Christina Olson: American Model and Edith & Jenny. On television, she's best known for her starring role on the ABC-TV series, My So Called Life, for which she received an Emmy Award nomination and a Golden Globe Award. In films, Dane is currently appearing in Evening and later this year, she can be seen in Stardust. Other films she's appeared in include The Family Stone, Little Women and Shopgirl.

Currently, the American Airlines Theatre is host to the limited engagement of Old Acquaintance.
