  My Fair Lady at The Kennedy Center

My Fair Lady

The Kennedy Center
2700 F Street, NW Washington

From Lincoln Center Theater comes "a sumptuous new production of the most perfect musical of all time" (Entertainment Weekly), Lerner & Loewe's My Fair Lady. Director Bartlett Sher's glowing production is "thrilling, glorious and better than it ever was" (The New York Times). Boasting such classic songs as "I Could Have Danced All Night," "The Rain in Spain," and "Wouldn't It Be Loverly," My Fair Lady tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor who is determined to transform her into his idea of a "proper lady." But who is really being transformed? Secure your tickets with this Goldstar pre-sale offer.

"...Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the performance. I loved seeing such a beloved golden-age hit restaged and touring around the country. However, I thought that some of the direction by Sher might be confusing and not achieve its desired effect. All in all, the cast all had some pretty solid performances and they all sounded quite "loverly"."

"...With his two show-stopping production numbers, Alfred P. Doolittle always dominates his scenes. Adam Grupper nails the comic timing, the Shavian discourses on individual responsibility, and Gattelli's rowdiest choreography, including dancing girls in magenta costumes for "Get Me to the Church on Time.""

"...The character arc that carries Lerner and Loewe’s classic My Fair Lady belongs to Eliza Doolittle, as she rises from flower girl at Covent Garden to the belle of the embassy ball, from feral street creature to self-possessed autonomy. With fierce intelligence and an unquenchable passion for learning, she takes charge of her own life."

MD Theatre Guide - Highly Recommended

"...Thankfully, this is not a “lite” tour version. The musical is done in the grand, Broadway tradition. The costumes by Catherine Zuber are breathtaking, as is the set design by Michael Yeargan, complemented by Donald Holder’s lighting design. The revolving and scrupulously detailed, Edwardian townhouse of Professor Higgins is utilized like one would a continuous shot in a film to brilliant effect in “Just You Wait” and “The Servants’ Chorus.” The ensemble is vocally tight and masters the exuberant choreography of Christopher Gattelli."

"...Ahmed has feistiness and confidence in her gestural movements and physical engagement. If the voice doesn't have the size or supple dynamics of Julie Andrews, it is nonetheless pleasing. More importantly, she delivers every acting moment with feeling and commitment: from street vendor who has to be scrappy to survive, to a young woman wounded in love, and finally to someone who can stand up to Professor Higgins and show him his own blindness, insensitivity and shortcomings."
