My Fair Lady: As Loverly As It Gets



On Friday, April 28, audiences found out just how “loverly” a night at the opera house could be. Lyric’s production of Lerner and Lowe’s My Fair Lady premiered to a packed house that experienced one of the most loved musicals of all time. From its dazzling costumes to its show-stopping musical numbers, My Fair Lady is the show to see this spring.

Check out what critics are saying about My Fair Lady at Lyric:

“Regal, majestic, and grand… The costumes are rich, the sets are magnificent… a fun experience for the whole family.” Paul Lisnek, WGN’s Behind the Curtain

“...each character is played to perfection… Grant and O’Hare revel in their roles as Higgins and Doolittle.” Chicago Stage Standard

“...this My Fair Lady gives us a pair that could not easily be matched… every note full and magnificent… altogether opulent.” PerformInk

“Lisa O’Hare is absolutely charming…” Dean Richards, WGN

“Bryce Pinkham was a treat to hear…” Chicago Theater and Arts

“Exquisite…sublime…as loverly as it gets. This new Broadway caliber production is guaranteed to make theatergoers want to ‘dance all night.’” Chicago Theatre Review

“...a stunning success and high note on which to end a remarkable season.” Stage and Cinema

“Lavishly designed and staged…eye-popping costumes.” – Chicago Sun-Times
