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.

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!

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.

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.

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

This was a wonderful co-produced play that was fabulous in all arenas (acting, set, costumes, etc.). A beautifully told classic that I truly enjoyed.

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.
