All Eliza wants is to learn how to speak well enough to work in a nice flower shop. (Henry isn’t very interested in helping Eliza, he just wants to use her to prove his theories about language.) The two set to work pronouncing tongue twisters till Eliza finally learns to correctly pronounce “the rain in Spain stays mainly on the plain.” All their hard work is made compelling in part thanks to some of Broadway’s most unforgettable tunes, including “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face,” “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly” and “The Rain in Spain.”
