BWW Blog: Brandon Davidson of MY FAIR LADY - If Higgins Was Alive Today
by Guest Blogger: Brandon Davidson - Sep 30, 2013

I was a bit intrusive to my cast this evening: I went around to each cast member and stuck my voice memo recorder in their face asking them 4 on-the-spot questions about Henry Higgins. It proved to be a funny experiment as my cast mates blurted out some of their answers (I made this a timed experiment, asking each cast member to say the first answer that came to mind). As it turns out, there were a few common answers about where Higgins would live, or which celebrity he resembles. And just the same, there were some "left field" answers which were cause for a chuckle. Here are the questions I asked:

by Guest Blogger: Brandon Davidson - Sep 23, 2013

On the first day of rehearsal, I found out the woman playing my mother was a native of England. I would be lying if I didn't say I had to face & accept the challenge of speaking with her in her native English dialect. I'm from San Diego and we say things like "dude" & "surf," not "tea & crumpets." Thankfully, I was well prepared from a handful of semesters in dialect training during my college years.

One of the unspoken thrills of theatre is getting ready for each performance. The prep-work involves putting on wigs, applying make-up, zipping up costumes, and (in the case of My Fair Lady) applying facial hair.

by BWW News Desk - Aug 19, 2013

Hailed as one of the greatest musicals of all time, My Fair Lady (September 6 through October 6) is the perfect grand finale to the STAGES ST. LOUIS record-breaking 27thseason. This romantic fancy radiates a charm and sophistication unlike any other musical and reigns as an American masterpiece. Lerner and Loewe's score couldn't be closer to pure perfection, with memorable show-stoppers such as 'I Could Have Danced All Night,' 'On the Street Where You Live,' and 'Get Me to the Church on Time.' You'll 'grow accustomed' to this 'loverly' classic as 'your heart takes flight.'

WHO'S LERNER & LOEWE Holds Performances 3/5-3/22
by BWW News Desk - Mar 2, 2009

Of the few songwriting teams known as one word we have Rodgers & Hart, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Kander & Ebb and...Lerner & Loewe. These two men created many of America's most well-known musical theater scores. They weren't nearly as prolific as those others mentioned, but in listing their works together, there's not one clinker among them. Their first hit was Brigadoon in 1947, then came Paint Your Wagon in 1951, My Fair Lady in 1956, the film Gigi for MGM in 1958 and finally Camelot in 1960.
