    BWW Reviews: The Guthrie Theater's Gorgeous New Production of MY FAIR LADY is a Musical with Style and Substance
    by Jill Schafer - Jul 10, 2014

    There's a reason My Fair Lady is one of the most beloved musicals of all time. Not only does it feature a bunch of wonderful songs by Lerner and Loewe that have become classics, but it's based on the George Bernard Shaw play Pygmalion that deals with issues of class, gender, societal expectations, and the intersection of wealth and power. It's a musical that has style and substance. The Guthrie's gorgeous new production does well by this classic. The show is perfectly cast, the familiar music sounds great, the choreography is fantastic, and the sets and costumes are luscious. This hugely entertaining show is definitely a must-see summer blockbuster musical. (more...)

    BWW Reviews: Top Notch Cast Delivers Sparkling PYGMALION
    by Frank Benge - Jun 30, 2014

    Doing Shaw isn't for the timid, especially for modern audiences which have become expectant of a happy ending. There's a reason why "Pygmalion" remains Shaw's most popular play which has been turned into a movie, a stage musical, and a film musical. It's a classic Cinderella story, complete with slippers… in this case, though; they're thrown rather than worn. There's even a ball - well, a couple of parties, actually. The problem is…there's no Prince Charming. This fairy tale has no happy ending. (more...)

    BWW Reviews: HEARTBREAK HOUSE a Long Sit, But the Acting Quality May Make It Worth the Effort
    by Roy Berko - Jun 16, 2014

    by David Clarke - Jun 11, 2014

Now, with Masterworks Broadway recent release, this entirely forgotten gem is seeing the light of day again. (more...)
