OK, I have to admit my bias – I think this is the best musical ever written! when I was in high school I used to study with this playing in a continuous loop in the background. Probably explains why I know all the lyrics but can’t remember any physics or chemistry.
In any case, the Shaw production met all my expectations. Deborah Hay was a loverly Eliza. Benedict Campbell was superb as Henry Higgins. Neil Barclay was born to play the part of Alfred Doolittle and Patrick Galligan was an excellent Pickering -even though he looks too young.
Great staging and scenery, wonderful costumes. You had to walk out singing!
