The show was great. Casting - near perfect (a dorky Freddie and I prefer a strong Freddie). Higgins seemed odd at first, but absolutely sold me - he created the charactor Shaw had in mind. Cannot say enough about Eliza; just wonderful. Good...continued

Acting was superb, no matter how small the part. Prof. Higgins couldn't have been better.

I highly recommend this show. It is basically My Fair Lady without the music. The acting was great and I especially enjoyed the actor who played Henry Higgins. He did a terrific job and added a great deal of humor to the play. The show was...continued

Extremely entertaining play. We went from a Shaw staged reading in the afternoon to this one in the evening. Thoroughly enjoyed the acting and the setting.

This was a terrific production of Pygmalion. All the actors were great, particularly loved Higgins, Mrs. Pearce, Mrs. Higgins and Mr. Doolittle. They also did a really nice job with the set & costumes.

Great fun story that is wonderfully acted. The patter and dialogue is terrific. Professor Higgins and Eliza are top-notch! This is a show not to be missed.

I had read but never seen this play and was really impressed by the performances which I think we're really true to the writer. The set was beautiful and the changes were well executed. The actors were all excellent and very entertaining!

Thoroughly enjoyed this play! Lead characters Henry & Eliza were terrific, down to gestures & facial expressions. Other cast members were also very good! Theater has good seating, although at times could hear noise through the wall that was a bit...continued

The actors playing Eliza and Mrs. Higgins are fantastic! This show is well-paced and has a really nice set design. Don't let the musical, My Fair Lady, fool you - this is the real deal.

My husband and I saw Pygmalion yesterday, and we thoroughly enjoyed it! The actors were excellent, and I was quite impressed with their English accents. The actor playing Professor Higgins was very good and funny. His style of acting put me in...continued

The production was very well done and very well cast and the set was great. This is a play I think most people would enjoy and the theater is small, so all seats are good.

Excellent production--assured actors, beautiful set, ingenious set changes.

One suggestion--Higgins is pompous and even manic at times, but the lines are spoken so fast as to be sometimes incomprehensible.

This production exceeded my expectations. The casting was superb. Makkar shines (Eliza Doolittle) and so does O'Connell as Henry Higgins. Herceg is surprisingly good as Mrs. Higgins. The British accents were believable. I was engaged throughout....continued
