Premierenreport: Frische Neuproduktion von MY FAIR LADY in KielPremierenreport: Frische Neuproduktion von MY FAIR LADY in Kiel
by Iris Moebius - Nov 9, 2015

Genau so viel Mut wie ihre Heldin Eliza bewiesen Alan Jay Lerner und Frederick Loewe 1956, als sie aus George Bernard Shaws erfolgreicher »Romanze in 5 Akten« Pygmalion ein Musical machten. Doch diese Courage zahlte sich aus - MY FAIR LADY wurde zu dem Musical überhaupt und stellt auch 60 Jahre nach seiner Uraufführung am Broadway noch überraschende Fragen an die Bedeutung von Bildung und Verhalten für unser Fortkommen und das Verhältnis von intellektueller und emotionaler Intelligenz für unser Zusammenleben - verpackt in einer immer noch bezaubernd ehrlichen Variante des Aschenputtel-Motivs. Das Theater Kiel inszeniert den Klassiker in dieser Spielzeit nun unter der Leitung von Ricarda Regina Ludigkeit. Die Premiere fand am vergangenen Samstag statt, und Publikum wie Presse zeigten sich gleichermaßen beeindruckt. (more...)

BWW Review: Irresistibly Beguiling MY FAIR LADY Blooms at Musical Theatre WestBWW Review: Irresistibly Beguiling MY FAIR LADY Blooms at Musical Theatre West
by Michael L. Quintos - Nov 1, 2015

Fourth time's the charm for Musical Theatre West as the award-winning regional theater company opens its 63rd season with the 1956 Lerner and Loewe Broadway classic MY FAIR LADY. Retaining the effervescent wit and jubilant spirit of the original, MTW's irresistibly beguiling, top-notch local revival---now on stage at the Richard and Karen Carpenter Center for the Performing Arts in Long Beach, CA through November 8---is a thoroughly enjoyable production from start to finish.

BWW Review: We Could Have Danced All Night at MTW's  MY FAIR LADYBWW Review: We Could Have Danced All Night at MTW's MY FAIR LADY
by Don Grigware - Oct 26, 2015

Called by many the perfect musical, My Fair Lady based on George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion has perhaps the wittiest and showiest debate between the sexes. Shaw despised marriage and loved to magnify human frailty, both female and male. And with Lerner and Loewe to create the book, music and lyrics, the result is a creation with music and story that flow together in ideal harmony. Even when it's at its abrasive best, it's funny; even when Professor Henry Higgins (Martin Kildare) is obnoxious, selfish and self-centered to the hilt, we cannot help but laugh with him...and love him. Despite what a man says about a woman, he cannot live without her, and vice versa. We were born to live in  a love/hate relationship, to be at each other's throats and in the next second, rolling around in the hay. It's all a part of life and Shaw, and Lerner and Loewe displayed the ups and downs of romantic living better than anyone else...period. Now in an absolutely loverly production at MTW, Long Beach, the show plays through November 8 only. (more...)
