Everyone knows “My Fair Lady.” They’ve seen the musical. Or the movie. They’ve sung “I Could Have Danced All Night” or “The Rain in Spain.” Tapped their toes to “Just You Wait.” That hasn’t kept Jadd Davis from feeling excited about his production, which opened Thursday at the Salvation Army Kroc Center in Coeur d’Alene and kicks off the 2014 Coeur d’Alene Summer Theatre season. The decision to program what’s been called the “perfect” musical was easy. “It’s a brilliant piece of theatre, for one,” said the new CST artistic director. “And it’s a show that audiences want to see over and over again.” Ultimately, it was the message of the piece that appealed to him. “I love stories that contain a human journey,” Davis said/Carolyn Lamberson, SR 7 Today.

Question: Which famous play have seen most?
