Customer Reviews for My Fair Lady
I feel so bad for everyone who canâ€™t understand the ending. It was so powerful.
a complete reframing.
So there were three things that struck me while watching my fair lady- The protestors for women's suffrage in white (such a huge contrast with all of the colors), The lack of any real chemistry between Eliza and Higgins (she was infatuated, but when she sang the song about the world going on she sang it confidently rather than longingly). And the ending where she leaves. I think they purposefully reframed the whole thing so as not to fit the typical woman needs man scenario. Those were all conscious choices by the director- not accidents and turned the typical trope from decades past into a relevant message. Fantastic!
What a great performance was last night at the Arsht Center in Miami, actors, stage, orchestra, all acted as one. Thank you for bringing art to us, my husband and I had a great evening.
Modern Take to a Traditional Musical
The ensemble was extremely talented, particularly the actress who played Eliza Doolittle and the secondary actor who sang â€œon the street where you liveâ€. Great supporting voices, costumes and interesting revolving stage concept. Itâ€™s a well staged revival - with a modern twist to the ending. I was wondering how this musical which focused much on class and gender differences would be seen through a contemporary lens - the producers obviously added more diversity to the cast and a â€œfeministâ€ conclusion. Clearly a modern interpretation of a very traditional and classic musical. Iâ€™d strongly recommend it to children, teens and adults who appreciate a great theater experience.
Best production ever!!!
Very talented production! Outstanding scenery! Singing & orchestra superb!!! Don't delay....see as soon as possible!!!
My Fair Lady at the State Theater Cleveland. Knew that there were some changes (updates?) but didnâ€™t know the details. Expected a strong cast based on actors backgrounds and were pleased with what we saw and heard. Sound was great from where we were sitting (Main orchestra, JJ center). A long show for sure and maybe it did â€œdragâ€ a bit in Act 2, pun intended?, but we really enjoyed it. We were surprised by the ending but after rewatching the movie on Netflix two days later we donâ€™t have a problem with the change - we get it. It is ok to leave the audience guessing. Henry can get his own slippers!
