COULDN'T UNDERSTAND DIALOGUE

To be fair, I've never seen my fair lady but I love most musicals and I'm a professional singer, performer and all around musician myself. The only song I knew was I could have danced all night. The set was great. The orchestra was amazing. The singing was in tune, though I'm not a fan of so much vibrato personally. But there were no bad notes. I really enjoyed the quartet of men. My biggest complaint is that I missed 60% of all the words spoken or sang. It was so hard to understand everyone. Especially the father character, his speech was so muddy. It was very hard to follow the plot because of this, but alas the plot is also really quite dull in my opinion. (I'm a 45 yo woman). It's a LONG musical and ultimately I was very bored. There were a lot of empty seats Tuesday night.

LAIRD MACINTOSH IS OUTSTANDING

Perhaps it was 1st night jitters. Vocals and the orchestra were not in sync several times. The presentation overall was done well for a road company. Laird Macintosh and Shereen Ahmed are excellent, the costumes and sets present well.

MY FAIR LADY

A beautiful classic we were so looking forward to seeing. The theater and the set were beautiful! The dialogue was quite often difficult to understand. Eliza and Mr. Higgins were fantastic as was Freddy - spectacular voices. Mr. Doolittle not so much. Changing Get Me To The Church to a drag scene was incredibly disappointing. And the end was sad. Again, why change it? No need. Also, don’t sit in the box seats if you want to be comfortable. Chairs are horribly uncomfortable for a 3 hour performance.

PERHAPS USE SUBTITLES

We worked closely & socialized with the Brits for over 30 years. We've spent time in some of their homes and they've spent time in our home. We have a son living in the UK as well. So we know the culture and we understand the accents better than most Americans. Despite this we understood about half of the dialog. Otherwise we thought it was a fine performance.

MY FAIR LADY

After this performance, I am cancelling my 2023/24 Broadway Subscription - Saturday Matinees package. After attending the performance of My Fair Lady, it is obvious that the theatre is moving in a different direction than I want to be part of. What could have been a feel good play after dealing with COVID 19 turned into a political statement on feminism, trans/ crossdressing, and the modern woman. I'm not against any of these issues, but using a classic to present these issues is a bait and switch. My wife's comment was wtf was that ending about. If you want to do a play on these issues, write your own and do not dupe your subscribers into thinking it is anything traditional. I have been a season ticket holder for five years, and I will finish out this season and be done with DCPA Broadway. As usual the cast was amazing, but the ending is so unfulfilling that you have to ask what was the writer. director thinking.

HARD TO UNDERSTAND DIALOGUE

I thought the sound problems were related to the Bass Hall but apparently others in other cities had the same problem. The singing was exquisite though. Wasn't a fan of the "Get me to the church on time" scene - it seemed jarring in what is essentially a "period piece" musical but in this day and time it is to be unexpected I guess. The sets were stunning. I understand why the ending was done but it was a bit jarring.

DISAPPOINTING

The dialogue was difficult to understand particularly in the first act. We maybe understood half of it. And the actor who played Higgins spoke so fast that we never were able to understand him much throughout. The “new” ending just seemed forced and abrupt. We all left unsatisfied. But the sets and costumes were amazing, the music and singing first rate. I would give it 3.5 stars if that was a choice.
