Last Tuesday evening I visited the Theatre Royal to see a showing of My Fair Lady. I grew up watching the 1964 film with Audrey Hepburn, so I was excited to experience a stage production.
The night started off strong when we discovered we had been upgraded to Dress Circle seating, giving us a great view of the stage. The numbers with Alfred P. Doolittle were hilarious and fun, and the actress cast as Eliza was amazing, with an absolutely wonderful singing voice. I knew it would be hard to see someone other than Audrey Hepburn as Eliza, but she did a fantastic job embodying the character. The costuming was also great, especially for the Ascot scene, which featured elaborate black and white designs.
Overall, it was a lovely introduction to British theatre, and I hope to attend more productions soon.
