This is the 4th time I have seen a professional production of MFL. The intimacy of the Fichlander make it rank among the best. The vloices were excellent, albeit, as often happens with theater in the square staging, some of the dialogue and...continued

"My Fair Lady" equals the enchanting "Music Man" that was at Arena Stage earlier this year. Every song in this score is a classic, and the superb cast renders them all beautifully. The principals are first rate and matched by a fine supporting...continued

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 roles were performed exceptionally well and kudos, of course, to "Freddy." Too...continued

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

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.

Fair production of great musical. Miscasting and poor direction doomed this production. The actor who protrayed Higgins was too old for the part and the actor who portrayed Eliza's father was a complete failure. Eliza was pretty good and...continued

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

Loved the principals, but felt the whole production was too long (too much dancing). Accents were very difficult to understand. If we hadn't known the story and the music with lyrics, we never would have followed it. Costuming for the street...continued

Small intimate theater. Loved the show. The accents take some getting used to, but this was very well acted and sung. Manna Nichols (Eliza Doolittle) was stunning; she truly belongs on Broadway!!

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

We bought these tickets for a family outing with our grown children and their spouse/boyfriend. It was a perfect event to go to as a family. I had read the review in the Washington Post and after seeing the production, we did not agree with the...continued

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!
