He does, and aristocrat Freddy Eynsford-Hill falls madly in love with her. But when Higgins takes all the credit and forgets to acknowledge her efforts, Eliza angrily leaves him for Freddy, and suddenly Higgins realizes he’s grown accustomed to her face and can’t really live without it. "Shall We Dance" is a Japanese film telling of Shohei Sugiyama, who has attained all that he has wanted in life. But he is still depressed and unhappy.

He hopes they will rid his depression and help him get his life back together. 5-6 p.m. reception/cash bar. 6:15-8:15 p.m. "My Fair Lady." 8:30-10:30 p.m. "Shall We Dance."
