Who is better in the role? Also, is it true that Laura extended her contract until April? Will Lauren Ambrose come back to finish her year contract?
I have not seen Kerstin Anderson, but I thought Lauren Ambrose and Laura Benanti were both astonishing in the role in their own ways.
I saw Lauren in previews, Kerstin on December and Laura last weekend. They were all very good and I was never disappointed in seeing any of them as Eliza. But personally (Yes, anyone can disagree with me, lol), my favorite is Kerstin Anderson.Her performance was way above my expectation. Her voice is so powerful. Her performance gave me a feeling that the stage belonged to her. Plus, she has the least experience among the three(one original cast, one Tony winner, and Kerstin herself). She has a bright career ahead of her, I believe.
my vote goes to Kerstin Anderson. I think she's underrated actually. My favorite Eliza has always been Martine McCutcheon though in the West End.
any chance Kelli Ohara might play the role at some point in the run?

Seems a very hard thread to join, since only people who saw all three could have a valid opinion, and even then... just an opinion anyway.
All of them are strong in the role. All different takes, and they are all insanely talented. You can't lose with My Fair Lady, honestly.
I plan on seeing Laura Benanti next month, but would also like to see Kerstin Anderson. Still no word on Heather Botts' performance as Eliza.
I’ve seen Ambrose and Anderson. I was not disappointed by either, but I was blown away by Kerstin. She actually went to school with my cousins, so I really wanted to see her. Used my LincTix to see her and was blown away by her talent. She was incredible. Her “Could’ve Danced All Night” will always be my favorite moment of her performance,

Anyone have an opinion on Kerstin or Lauren's?"I thought Lauren Ambrose's accent was pretty great. It wasn't a strong or over-the-top accent, but it was more grounded and I found it very consistent. I can imagine a real person speaking the way she did.
