4 and 3/4 stars. This was a smashing colorful rendition of the classic musical that requires style and intent to deliver and this production did it in spades. The costumes and choreography will undoubtedly win awards. The chorus, orchestra and music directing were energetic and spot on. My highest praise goes to the Professor Harold Hill whose acting was impecable. Eliza was winning and multi-dimensional with a gorgeous voice. Our Freddy was the understudy but played it so perfectly I hope he gets many shows. The only reason I don't give it five stars was the performance of Eliza's father and the scenes he was in. These can be wonderful and this actor just didn't have it - my theatre professional friend and I wondered at this casting. This character is to provide the counterpoint to the ascendent journey of Eliza. But do go and see what you think. A memorable evening all around.

“How could I refuse the serious call of this musical?
“Our story is about the transformation of a human being through language, manners, mind, heart and dress; both Eliza Doolitte and Henry Higgins are transformed. It is the story of emancipation – not just about Eliza but also Higgins as he discovers his own humanity. Lerner and Loewe succeeded in maintaining the exquisite language, story and characters from Shaw’s brilliant _Pygmalion _in creating this dynamic musical.
“The other story is about the class and the rigid social structures which confine us. In a world increasingly blown apart by the dynamics of the very rich and the very poor, this musical hits the sweet spot of our contemporary awareness of class. It asks the question: How does language define us? How do we judge others through their language, manners and dress? How does our own class, whether lower, middle, or upper, confine and define us?” —Molly Smith, director/artistic director
