We all LOVED it, and couldn't explain why it got such a bad review in the Washington Post.

The show is very good and very enjoyable. There are a few slow moments in the play, no reflection on the production. The lead singers are excellent, the costumes very... continued

This was one of the best stage productions I have seen this year. The acting and singing was "exceptional".

Enjoyed it tremendously. The actors playing Eliza and Freddy had beautiful voices, and almost all the other actors were strong also. The only weak link was the actor... continued

Well costumed and and staged. I thought the singing was exceptional especially by the leads. Sound quality wasn't always the best.

Arena Stage is a great venue. Love this musical and this was a great performance. The show started at 8:00 PM and lasted until after 11:00 PM; about 20 minutes too long.

Thought we were scheduled for opening night. Turns out it was a "preview." In any event, we were notified less than 24 hours from show time that the prformance had been cancelled due to the need for more "technical" rehearsal. Huh? For MFL?

The leads were fantastic, especially the Professor. Worth seeing just for his performance.

Contrary to the review in the Washington Post, this production was highly entertaining, and included a delightfully well done antagonism between Henry and Eliza. Both... continued
