2.0 star rating P.A.Wilson from Denver, Colorado


I think this might have been an interesting theatrical experience if we could have understood any of the dialogue. The sound system aimed toward where we sat, Orchestra, section B, row M, was so garbled the actors might as well have been speaking Swahili. This also made many of the songs ear-splittingly screetchy . Which was a shame since I suspect many of the actors had very nice voices. Such a disappointment! We did not mind the so-called modern tweaks to this old classic, by the way, but those were all moot points since nearly all the dialogue was a muddy mess.

2.0 star rating Andrew Schoening from Fort Worth, Texas


It is unfair to compare anyone to Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn. Especially the first quarter of this production in which you could barely understand half the dialogue. The thick London accents were so thick that I dare say a Londoner wouldn’t have understood half of what was being said, after that point, the production did seem to pick up somewhat. Any momentum gained, however, was lost with the singing of Get Me to the Church . During that number, I actually saw people stand up and walk out of the theater. Then drag queens and sorid dancing , were better suited to Kinky Boots than they were Victorian England. The remainder of the play was fairly enjoyable, but I dare say thatfew in attendance will be back to see it a second time.

2.0 star rating Wm Friedlander from Miami, Florida


This was a disappointing performance of such a great musical. What they got right was the production. The sets were good, The costumes was good, and the orchestra. What they got wrong and need to work on is Eliza's cockney accent. Totally unintelligible. Couldn't understand a word she said. Professor Higgins was totally miscast. Too young, stiff, unapproachable and totally wrong for the part. There was no feeling of empathy for these two main characters. The chorus was good and Mr Doolittle was okay but in general the leads did not have strong enough voices needed.. It seemed more like a senior college cast without the experience, depth, or ability to warrant a Broadway in Miami title. Having seen the original production and the excellent Lincoln center production, this traveling version of My Fair Lady did not live up to expectations.

2.0 star rating Robert from Miami, Florida


Lots of talent but a very different story. As I remember the story from my childhood, it was about social class. Two bachelors that enter a wager, begin an experiment, are overwhelmed by plutonic love, and possibly are changed for evermore by a young woman . A uneducated female that learns, grows, flourishes, and is dramatically empowered through her efforts. Her father, living a life with little purpose, that finds fortune and also changes his ways to a new life. The modernized changes only dilute the message that Audrey Hepburn nailed. The music and vocals were excellent. Really did not like the ending. Wanted to go home happy!

2.0 star rating from New Orleans, Louisiana


The cast was far out of their depth. The English accents sounded as if they were coached by Keanu Reeves. Who told “Freddy” English people sound like that? Strange phrasing and pacing of the songs, with weird unexpected accentuations (“I’m a most forgiving MAAAANN!”). Acting was almost like a satire of the play. Higgins was too young, and seemed more hysterical than arrogant snob. And he and Col. Pickering minced around the stage-evidently “Brucie” was Pickering’s old lover, based on their phone call. Add to that the Rocky Horror Picture Show choreography, and it seems that the director has not got the news that camp gay is no longer shocking or cutting edge, but in this venue, just annoying and tiresome. I get it, there is a strong connection between the gay community and musical theater. Mr. Doolittle seemed more a loutish bully than charming ne’er do well. However. Complaints about the ending? This was never a love story. Two flawed people, suspicious of emotional attachment, find a need for each other and reach an accommodation. Besides seeing the movie many times, long ago I saw a revival with most of the original broadway and movie cast. They were engaging and delightful. I just wanted these guys to shut up.

2.0 star rating Cranston from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


This play is bursting with woman-hating songs and sentiments that are barely challenged. I felt sad about the little girls in the audience. The “new” ending makes no sense, or maybe I just stopped caring as it went on and on for 3 hours. On a production note, I’ve never seen so much of the backstage and some sets looked like they might fall over. Be advised, this is not a Broadway show. You can tell.
