After reading this review, I find myself wondering whether your critic saw the same production of "My Fair Lady" that I saw two weeks ago in Boston. Far from lacking "fizz," this "My Fair Lady" is a non-stop, high-energy tour de force, with superb performances by Lisa O'Hare and Christopher Cazenove, who succeeds in making the role of Professor Higgins his own.(Then again, I wasn't aware that "a passing resemblance to Rex Harrison" was a requirement for attempting this role. Let's face it: Rex Harrison got an Academy Award for playing Rex Harrison; could we please let him rest in peace and allow others a chance to actually ACT the part of Professor Higgins?)
I've no doubt that Minneapolis audiences will enjoy this amazing production as much as I did.

I LOVED IT!!! Technically flawless. Loved that lampost prop cue, slithering across the stage. Sound was great. Pit orchestra comprised of locals was a little weak. But played with great gusto. Scenery cues right on the money. And excellent.
Acting and singing--ABSOLUTELY SUPERB!!!
Am wondering how in heck they are going to stage The 39 Steps!!??:) Book and Hitchcock's movie were awesome.
Now that I have a real theatergoeer here, I wish to mention my ongoing quest to get SUBWAYS ARE FOR SLEEPING reprised. However I would beg that the title be changed.
