Enjoyable. My Fair Lady is a well known and much loved musical. The singing, costumes and creative use of space were all quite entertaining. The fact that the cast was mainly American meant that most with speaking roles had to adopt appropriate...continued

My daughter and I loved the show! The voices of the main characters were very strong, their words were clear and singers projected well. The choreography was energetic. The acting was very good. Costumes were beautiful. This version of a...continued

The show was one of the very best I've ever seen in DC. Great costumes, imaginative set, great acting/singing.

Wonderful to see this show again! Both leads are excellent, the ensemble exceptionally strong. Only weak point might be the weak singing of James Saito as Alfred Doolittle.

Delightful Musical !!! Manna Nichols, playing Eliza Doolittle, has a lovely, pure singing voice. I enjoyed the wonderful songs

Enjoyed the show. Entertaining for a Sunday afternoon. A bit lackluster, although the two key players were excellent. Would recommend if you have nothing better to do.

Every scene and song were a delight for me and my guest. So glad we didn't miss the production. The leads of Eliza and Henri Higgins were outstanding!! The choreography was superb. The costuming, exceptional. Kudos to Arena!

Great show - great music, dancing and costumes. Very enjoyable. I was initially a bit concerned since our seats were in the last row but they were okay. Arena is set up so any seat is fine.

I enjoyed the show. The cast had amazing voices. It was a remix of the old movie and it was refreshing!

If you grew up with My Fair Lady and know and love the songs, you will enjoy this production. I smiled all the way through. Sure, the costumes were not the most fabulous and it took time to get used to someone other than Rex Harrison and the...continued

It is a classic rendering of the play. The acting is superb and the singing is glorious. I fell in love with Freddie Einsford Hill on the spot.

The Arena production surpassed my expectations. The staging was beautiful and lavish -- I wanted to take out a camera and snap the Ascot scene to remember and share with others! And Manna Nichols as Eliza was enchanting. She has the voice of an...continued

The show was fabulous -- acting and music -- one of my favorite shows of all time. Seats were great -- theater in the round -- so good view from almost anywhere. Arena Stage is about a block and a half from the Waterfront Metro stop. Made it...continued

Very good production. Liza Doolittle had a beautiful voice. The supporting cast was excellent, but I thought that the actor who played the professor was miscast.

Fabulous production. As many times as I have seen MFL -- either play or movie -- I do not tire of it. Of course it's all about the music and everyone can sing but I must say Manna Nichols' (Eliza) voice is breath taking. A fabulous way to spend...continued
