  Fair_Lady_2586_DC

The Shaw Festival, which is now in the midst of its 50th season, today announced some positive news today in a release. Here are the highlights:

•Its production of "My Fair Lady," is projected to be the best-selling show in the history of the festival, with more than 90,000 tickets sold through the end of the run.

•Three shows by George Bernard Shaw -- "Heartbreak House," "On the Rocks" and "Candida" -- have sold a combined 60,000 tickets, which the festival claims is proof of the "continued importance of The Shaw's namesake in the fabric of the Festival." The Shaw productions represent 24 percent of the fest's total ticket sales, which, according to the Shaw, is a "marked increase over the last four years."

•Two shows, "Maria Severa" and "Drama at Inish: A Comedy," have been extended through Oct. 2 and Oct. 9, respectively.
