Dame Julie...

 Born Julia Elizabeth Wells, in 1935,
Julie took the name Andrews from her step-father, 
who began teaching her voice.
She evidently did not enjoy it!

 Her Broadway debut in The Boyfriend, 1954.
She played Polly Browne, and received a 
Theatre World Award.

More Polly...a success that brought her
to the eyes of Lerner and Loewe,
and stardom in My Fair Lady, just 1 year later.
