Wow, sorry you didn't enjoy yourself. I, and the rest of the audience clearly did. I did think it was fresh and relevent and a slight reinterpretation of the classic story. The production numbers were very entertaining. In some cases rousing. The audience nearly jumped to their feet at the end of Little Bit Of Luck. The actor who portrayed Alfie Dolittle was terrific. (The audience did jump to their feet when he took his bow at the end of the play). I thought Lisa O'Hare was great as Eliza. I particularly liked her acting. The scenes at the Ascot consist for the most part, of very understated humor and she really lent a nice touch to some subtle lines. If you like the play My Fair Lady and have seen it before, I think you'll really like this production. Excellent scenery and very clever integration into scene changes as well.

This was a very smooth, very well done performance. Technically flawless. The guy who sang Pickering was OVER THE TOP! What a voice!!! He should have played the lead!!!!

I ADORED this musical!!!

And OhMyGosh, I HAVE to add here, since we are talking about musicals, that I have an ongoing quest and hope to see SUBWAYS ARE FOR SLEEPING reprised. Lovely songs. Great topic for nowadays with corporate layoffs. Many people homeless and out-of-work.
