MY SPECTACULAR LADY IN MY FAIR LADY
Have been singing the score myself for 40 years, and Shereen Ahmed's singing was exquisite. Took my granddaughter, age 12 and my daughter to this production, and it was delightful! The only drawback was at the end ~ we were left hanging as Eliza just walks off the stage...and Henry did not follow; just stayed on stage. All three of us just felt like...what????!!! They need to rewrite that ending! The scenery, portrayals and musicianship were all well done, and we were delighted to have attended. They received a standing ovation and well deserved it!

FLAWLESS FIRST ACT, QUESTIONABLE SECOND
First saw this show in London in 1958. Have seen many different productions since. Brought my granddaughter to see this production which she loved. The first act was perfection. Then we got into the second act and the utterly gratuitous drag wedding scene during what should be a rollicking Get me to the Church on time struck a sour note.Things got better and Higgins I’ve grown accustomed to her face was sheer perfection. But then the ending, Eliza appears and then walks off. Is she a figment if Higgins imagination? That was the explanation of several of the audiences younger set. I was totally confused.Very unsatisfactory ending for me but still a spectacular show!.

The play was outstanding, my wife and I enjoyed our evening. Cast, orchestra and stage scenery BRAVO! I would enjoy watching your play again.

GREAT PRODUCTION OF MY FAIR LADY
Overall, we had a very enjoyable evening spent watching My Fair Lady. The individual performances were strong and the orchestra did an amazing job. My only real complaint is that was difficult for me to hear the dialogue at times, and i was sitting in the 3rd row! Made me wonder if they were having microphone issues. They need to turn up the volume a bit. Also, the ending (where Eliza approaches Prof Higgins, then turns and hurries off stage) seemed a bit awkward and even confusing. They need to rethink that part for sure.

I was not expecting Rex or Audrey and had my expectations tempered. I think the solo voices were beautiful. They were overshadowed at times by either the chorus or the orchestra. You would think that sound checks would have fixed that before the performance. Also, the ending was very bizarre. My eleven year old asked, and all I could say was that maybe they wanted the audience to decide the ending?

FUN, BUT UNDERWHELMING
This would be tough for any singer to play, after the iconic Audrey Hepburn and Julie Andrews as Eliza and Rex Harrison as Professor Higgins. The two leads did a fair job, but the passion (and often the volume) was lacking. Eliza had a pretty singing voice, but she was often just too angry for me. Higgins should have been far more explosive in his two great songs ("Why Can't a Woman" and "I'm an Ordinary Man"). I had trouble understanding the dialogue. And what's with the weird scene in "Get Me to the Church on Time" with the drag queens simulating sex? An unnecessary addition to an otherwise fun scene. And the ending? Just confusing.
