Critics reviews

Even by the standards and aesthetics of the stage, My Fair Lady tends to be excessively static. There is no choreography to speak of, and the constriction of the action in Higgins’ study for the greater part of two hours would have been fatal to the show if Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews had not brought off the “Rain in Spain” number with such electrifying effect, thus canceling out the tedium and ennui that preceded the inspired celebration of Eliza’s victory over her vowels.
