by Iris Moebius - Nov 5, 2015

MY FAIR LADY ist eines der meistgespielten und populärsten Musicals überhaupt. Insbesondere im deutschsprachigen Raum bedeutete sein Erfolg den Durchbruch der Gattung Musical. Auf der Basis von George Bernard Shaws Komödie „Pygmalion' kam das Musical von Komponist Frederick Loewe und Textdichter Alan Jay Lerner 1956 am Broadway zur Aufführung und erlebte dort sensationelle 2717 Aufführungen. Am Pfalztheater Kaiserslautern hatte die Produktion am 31. Oktober Premiere. Vorstellungen laufen noch bis Juli 2016. Weitere Informationen gibt es unter pfalztheater.de.

BWW Reviews: MY FAIR LADY at Rubicon Theatre CompanyBWW Reviews: MY FAIR LADY at Rubicon Theatre Company
by Cary Ginell - Nov 1, 2015

In the opening scene of the Rubicon Theatre Company's production of My Fair Lady, buskers in London's Covent Garden, where Cockney Eliza Doolittle works as a flower girl, are rewarded with tuppence given to them by members of the audience. It is this kind of intimacy, an initial breaking of the fourth wall, that helps make Rubicon's current production an enchanting, warm-hearted interpretation of one of Broadway's most beloved musicals.

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...)

by BWW News Desk - Oct 16, 2015

The director and designers behind Rubicon Theatre Company's acclaimed environmental productions ofFiddler on the Roof and Man of La Mancha have reunited on the two-piano chamber version of the legendary Lerner and Loewe's classic My Fair Lady. Based on George Bernard Shaw's play Pygmalion, the musical tells the story of Professor Henry Higgins, an arrogant and attractive phonetician who makes a wager that he can transform a 'deliciously low' Cockney flower-seller (Eliza Doolittle) into an elegant lady by teaching her to speak more beautifully. The magnificent score includes 'I Could Have Danced All Night,' 'On the Street Where You Live,' 'Wouldn't It Be Loverly,' and 'I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face.' For Rubicon's production, Director James O'Neil returns to the source material to explore the Shavian themes of class struggle, social reform and women's rights. (more...)
