BWW Review: MY FAIR LADY at Atlanta Lyric TheatreBWW Review: MY FAIR LADY at Atlanta Lyric Theatre
by Amy Zipperer - Aug 27, 2017

In June, the New York Post reported that Colin Firth, who is rumored to have turned down the role of Henry Higgins in the upcoming, highly-anticipated 2018 Lincoln Center revival of My Fair Lady, might still be considering the role.  Just a few days ago, they claimed that Lauren Ambrose could be our next Eliza Doolittle. These recent tidbits come on the heels of at least a dozen other Post articles over the last several years speculating on casting and direction for the slow-starting revival.  And why does New York's love-to-hate chatterbox keep landing on My Fair Lady gossip?  For the same reason everybody else wants to hear it.  It's a story that we can't get enough of.  And why can't we get enough of it?  Easy.  We are obsessed with the familiar Pygmalion story:  boy meets plain old girl, boy molds plain old girl into new-and-improved perfect girl, boy is fabulously happy.  The thing that makes My Fair Lady a Pygmalion story that rises above its mythological predecessor, as well as many other pop culture retellings, is that the plain old girl in this one, once she is transformed into new-and-improved perfect girl, recognizes what she has lost in the bargain and actually holds the boy accountable for it.  That's a good story. A relevant story. An important story.  And Atlanta Lyric Theatre, in their current production under the direction of Scott Seidl, tells the story quite well.  With an excellent cast, led by popular Atlanta actor Galen Crawley in her gorgeous turn as Eliza Doolittle, and some of the best music to hit the Atlanta stages this summer, the production is definitely one to celebrate.
