Nashville Scene review of 'My Fair Lady' from 2012-2013 season
There's no denying that My Fair Lady is one of the finest stage musicals of all time — and that Studio Tenn's new production delivers its grand style at the highest level. Watching Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's tuneful adaptation of George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion, we are reminded once again of the Irish master's brilliant insights into the societal condition and his daring depiction of haves and have-nots in a turn-of-the-century world. Shaw's creations — highbrow phoneticist Henry Higgins, lowbrow flower seller Eliza Doolittle, et al. — provide all the grist necessary for the script's gratifying sardonic humor and sly editorializing.
