Stage Door’s ‘My Fair Lady’ is Only Fair

One of the most popular, exquisitely crafted musicals from Broadway’s golden age is back on the boards, this time at Stage Door Theatre in Coral Springs.

My Fair Lady, Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe’s glorious interpretation of George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, remains as delightful a piece of musical theater as the day the team debuted it in 1956. But that doesn’t mean My Fair Lady is foolproof or easy to pull off, truths that the Stage Door production illustrates.

And Bill Hirschman reviewed the show for Florida Theater On Stage

Broward Stage Door’s Disappointing My Fair Lady Lacks Magic and Charm
The Broward Stage Door has given us wonderful productions of Light in the Piazza, Mack and Mabel, The Drowsy Chaperone and A Little Night Music. But this edition of My Fair Lady is a disappointing muddle other than a few adequate performances under the direction of the usually reliable Michael Leeds.

Stage Door’s strongest assets, thankfully, are Matthew William Chizever as the misanthropic speech pathologist Henry Higgins and Diana Rose Becker as the flower girl from the streets who he transforms into a “lie-dee” while she gets under his skin.
