YOU DON’T REWRITE A CLASSIC.

You don’t rewrite a classic. I read where one review said they should rewrite the ending well that’s exactly what they did and that’s why it didn’t make any sense. I felt the same way as most people did because first of all I knew how the ending was supposed to be and secondly the way they wrote it made no sense at all why would she come back just to walk away and leave him standing there?? If you’re familiar with my fair lady then you know that was someone’s attempt at trying to make it fit into today’s narrative. And you just don’t rewrite a classic! I will say the singing and the acting was exemplary and I agree also with what one reviewer said about the leading lady. Her voice was so beautiful and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to her.

I LIKE THE ENDING

Am I one of the few who didn’t want professor Higgins and Eliza together? I say sister, go on walking . Professor Higgins was clearly abusive . Eliza should run not walk off stage.

MY FAIR LADY

If your looking for Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn forget it. Watch the movie. If you want to see fun sets, live orchestra and wonderful voices this should hit the spot. I don’t know why so many people are up in arms about the Get Me to the Church On Time scene. It was a bit over the top and too long but not offensive. I agree the sound was muddled at times. Hard to discern the lyrics. Others complained about the ending. I don’t remember a love connection at the end in the original My Fair Lady or Pygmalion for that matter. Thought the end was underwhelming but fine.

LITTLE OLD, LITTLE NEW

This musical play had the feel of being an "old girl", but still viable, with beautiful and exquisite singing and acting. The Get Me to the Church was ridiculous IMHO. The spoken word was hard to hear-even proper voices, rather muddled. Character of Freddy was not developed. I kept thinking of an older lead, for some reason. The reason Liza left was because she saw her future with HH and figured he would not be good husband material, too controlling, fussy, and egocentricity would not abate. Liza was the "Little New" in this play. AllI could think was "Run Liza!" and she did!

GREAT SHOW WITH A FEW FLAWS

One can hardly go wrong with a classic like My Fair Lady. The sets and costumes were beautiful. The voices, stunning. However, it was hard to understand much of the first act. The sound system seemed off, not equalized properly and Eliza's accent was so over pronounced that I understood almost none of her lines. The song, Get Me to the Church On Time seemed to serve the taste of the Director without considering the expectation of the audience. Families were in the audience, as would be expected. I would have been horrified if I had brought a young child. It was an enjoyable evening, however, not without some flaws.

WOULDN’T IT BE LOVELY IF IT WE’RE ALL GOOD…

Watched it last night at San Jose and some things I enjoyed were the intimacy of the space-we can hear the actors clearly from anywhere in the theatre. I liked the costumes and how the production stayed true to the songs. Re the cast, loved MP as Eliza, beautiful voice and totally had me laughing at one point. I thought JG’s performance as Higgins was odd- I didn’t get the sense of the superior, haughty, suave Englishman with his actions, his movements were both stiff and too brisk, at one point though I wondered why wasn’t he moving his arms at all? Pickering was perfect- moving naturally on stage like he’s been doing this a million times over, I even hoped he and Eliza would get-together as there was no romantic tension between her and Higgins at all! I heard someone behind me say Freddie needs to stop singing to the tree. And MB as Mrs. Pearce- bless her, she, together with Mr. Doolittle and Mrs. Higgins are just exceptional! Didn’t mind the Get Me To The Church drag scene so much but it was a bit confusing, and the ending was a head scratcher…maybe just turning the lights off instead of her walking off stage would have left it up to the viewer to interpret however they wanted it to be. Umm, the ending I saw last night left me thinking- did she walk into an imaginary wall? Why is she back? What is going on?! I actually felt like I didn’t want her back with Higgins because he showed not an ounce of vulnerability or like-ability which I thought the character could improve on, he should have tugged a bit at our heartstrings more so at ‘I’ve Grown Accustomed To Her Face’ so there’s atleast an ounce of hope why we can understand her coming back in the end. Best performances for me were Wouldn’t It Be Lovely, With a Little Bit O’ Luck and I Could Have Danced All Night! Overall, if your like an entertainingly good night- I would watch it!

WEAK ENDING

The ending weak with no clear closure and too far a departure from its origin here. Also, wedding scene with drag queen didn't work in this old classic show and came across out of sink with the time period and place and a reach that missed meeting intent of this classic. Should have given show a different name if going to change script and play.....like making new Coke instead of sticking with Coke classic. Unfortunate for these 2 areas otherwise a strong superb performance, great set and costumes and wonderful singing and show.
