3.0 star rating R Merrow from Detroit, Michigan


A beautiful classic we were so looking forward to seeing. The theater and the set were beautiful! The dialogue was quite often difficult to understand. Eliza and Mr. Higgins were fantastic as was Freddy - spectacular voices. Mr. Doolittle not so much. Changing Get Me To The Church to a drag scene was incredibly disappointing. And the end was sad. Again, why change it? No need. Also, don’t sit in the box seats if you want to be comfortable. Chairs are horribly uncomfortable for a 3 hour performance.

3.0 star rating John Kelly from Parker, Colorado


We worked closely & socialized with the Brits for over 30 years. We've spent time in some of their homes and they've spent time in our home. We have a son living in the UK as well. So we know the culture and we understand the accents better than most Americans. Despite this we understood about half of the dialog. Otherwise we thought it was a fine performance.

3.0 star rating Steven J. Duff from Rocky Ford, Colorado


After this performance, I am cancelling my 2023/24 Broadway Subscription - Saturday Matinees package. After attending the performance of My Fair Lady, it is obvious that the theatre is moving in a different direction than I want to be part of. What could have been a feel good play after dealing with COVID 19 turned into a political statement on feminism, trans/ crossdressing, and the modern woman. I'm not against any of these issues, but using a classic to present these issues is a bait and switch. My wife's comment was wtf was that ending about. If you want to do a play on these issues, write your own and do not dupe your subscribers into thinking it is anything traditional. I have been a season ticket holder for five years, and I will finish out this season and be done with DCPA Broadway. As usual the cast was amazing, but the ending is so unfulfilling that you have to ask what was the writer. director thinking.

I thought the sound problems were related to the Bass Hall but apparently others in other cities had the same problem. The singing was exquisite though. Wasn't a fan of the "Get me to the church on time" scene - it seemed jarring in what is essentially a "period piece" musical but in this day and time it is to be unexpected I guess. The sets were stunning. I understand why the ending was done but it was a bit jarring.

3.0 star rating Kevin from Milwaukee, Wisconsin


The dialogue was difficult to understand particularly in the first act. We maybe understood half of it. And the actor who played Higgins spoke so fast that we never were able to understand him much throughout. The “new” ending just seemed forced and abrupt. We all left unsatisfied. But the sets and costumes were amazing, the music and singing first rate. I would give it 3.5 stars if that was a choice.

3.0 star rating Mike Henderson from Baltimore, Maryland


This is one musical where it’s important the acting is first rate, even if it means the singing is a little off. In this production, you had lead actors w strong voices who just didn't have the acting chops to sell the songs. Yes, Eliza’s cockney accent is supposed to be a bit grating but its critical that she also be endearing. Unfortunately, her voice, and the character herself, even after she dropped the cockney accent, continued to grate. The direction of the actors was uneven and awkward, as if the director had no insight into how people are supposed to interact. At best, it was a good college production, not what I have come to expect from The Hippodrome.

3.0 star rating D from Portland, Oregon


Portland, OR review based on March 2023 performances — Very familiar with Pygmalion and My Fair Lady movie, and have been singing the score for years. Acting was good. Set design was ‘meh’ for a Broadway tour. I do not have a problem with Producers putting their stamp on a show — that’s why we go see live theater instead of just watching all our own faves on demand… BUT the sound quality was horrible. It sounded muffled and hushed. It was very difficult to parse accents and speed of speech delivered during the play. Even the most beloved songs from this musical suffered at the hands of bad sound. I’m not sure if that is simply the sound quality from our local auditorium (haven’t attended for the past few years due to Pandemic) but I will have to think twice before returning to the venue. I spoke with friends who went two different nights than I attended and they separately mentioned sound quality as contributing to an all over *meh* show.
