"This Lerner and Loewe production really does tick all the boxes for me"
The Lincoln Center Theater Production of My Fair Lady has already wowed audiences in London, with its residency last year at The London Coliseum. Now nearly at the end of its UK tour, it is still having the same effect. I am a real sucker for classic, old-school musicals and this Lerner and Loewe production really does tick all the boxes for me.
As My Fair Lady has been around since the 1960’s courtesy of the film starring Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle, it’s fair to say that most of you will know the story of the Cockney working-class flower seller who is transformed into a cultured member of high society with the help of Professor Henry Higgins. I first want to talk about the incredible performer, Rebekah Lowings, an understudy to the role of Eliza who is very much at the top of her game. To see the transformation before our very eyes of the rather brash, opinionated and down to earth Eliza, to the very well spoken, confident young lady was mesmerising from start to finish. Lowings captures the very essence of Eliza, with a wonderful singing voice bringing us such highlights as ‘Wouldn’t It Be Loverly’, ‘Just You Wait’ and ‘I Could Have Danced All Night’.
