"My Fair Lady" Will Leave You Wanting to Dance All Night

My Fair LadyOn April 19th, the revival production of  My Fair Lady will open at Lincoln Center's Vivian Beaumont theatre.

In a word, this revival is entirely charming. Smiles are in abundance throughout the audience, and not a moment is wasted during the show. If you want a classic night out at the theater, look no further.

My Fair Lady tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a poor Cockney girl who is taken in as a challenge for Professor Henry Higgins is confident he can pass Eliza off as a high-class society lady in a short amount of  time, well enough to fool even a royal.

Lauren Ambrose is the fearless leader of the cast as Eliza Doolittle. Also joining her is Henry Haddon-Paton ("Downton Abbey") as Henry Higgins, two-time Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz ("Wicked") as Alfred P. Doolittle, and Tony Award winner Dame Diana Riggs ("Game of Thrones") as Mrs. Higgins. 

The excellent cast is what really sets this production above many other shows currently on Broadway. Lauren Ambrose's classically trained voice is teetering near perfection, all while seamlessly switching accents midway through the show. Fans of the movie who are are partial to Audrey Hepburn will have some difficulty deciding "Who sang it better?"

Another notable performance was that of Norbert Leo Butz as Eliza's father Alfred. Butz's rendition of  "Get Me To The Church On Time" is a crowd-pleasing favorite. The high-energy song is just what is needed, set opposite of melodies such as "I could Have Danced All Night" and "On The Street Where You Live."

The one thing I liked, but didn't love was the set design in the show. While the revolving house of Henry Higgins was very impressive, seats on the far left side of the theatre might have some difficulty seeing some parts of the action. In other scenes of the production there was a very minimalist sort of set design. While it worked for the exterior shots of the house, and the scene at Mrs. Higgins parlor, the bar set left a little bit to be desired.

Tickets for My Fair Lady are in high demand and selling fast. If you're interested in seeing this show, I suggest grabbing your tickets soon. This "loverly" show is not one to miss!

Customer Story

My Fair LadyToday's customer story comes all the way from the great state of Florida. Tampa to be exact. Actually that's not completely accurate, as this particular customer also has a residence in the Big Apple. So anyway now that you know where he's from, you are probably wondering what he wanted to see right?

Well as it turns out, he had called last week and ordered two tickets to see the new Broadway revival of My Fair Lady, and wanted to see another show, as he was now coming in a few days earlier than expected. I asked him what he wanted to see, and his first and only choice was one of last season's biggest hit's Hello Dolly. Good choice don't you think?

Now since he had already purchased Mezzanine tickets for My Fair Lady, I suggested the same type of seats for Hello Dolly. Thankfully he agreed with me. In the end I got him excellent seats in the fourth center of the Front Mezzanine, and at a price that was lower than he was expecting. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?
