Charming, Great orchestra, Thought-provoking, Must see, Great singing

See it if you like listening to pure musical soprano. Best Elisa I've ever seen. Lovely 38 pieces orchestra makes it best in town show too

Don't see it if you are expecting exactly the same everything from the film. I liked this one but the lady in the next seat was complaining about changes.

Great singing, Entertaining, Enchanting, Delightful

See it if You are a big fan of classic musicals, and wish to see a production that refreshes the original without changing the book itself.

Don't see it if You prefer more serious shows, or shows that are smaller or more intimate in nature.

Delightful

See it if Wonderful performances in a quintessential musical classic. Rich sound, costumes and sets make a sophisticated night out

Don't see it if Progressive changes to the show are well intentioned but feel out of place in a Broadway classic.

Loverly, Great writing, Clever

See it if you want to see a classic musical filled with wit and featuring some brilliant songs.

Don't see it if you expect a flashy modern musical, this is very much of it’s time and there’s relatively little revision in either script or score.

The London Evening Standard

Amara Okereke absolutely smashes it in Bartlett Sher’s joyful staging. Sher manages [to showcase a fresh production of the show] and has surely also turned Okerere from a promising actress into a bona fide star.

It is solidly performed all round but characterless and sedate. Funny moments ... never really catch fire. The chemistry between Higgins and Eliza never kicks in. Could it be that this Disneyfied Englishness is simply built to win the hearts, and wallets, of West End tourists or is that too cynical?

There are elements of this production that feel underpowered. Michael Yeargan’s eye-catching picture-book design has its snags. I wasn’t persuaded that Stephen K Amos as Eliza’s feckless pa was at home at a knees-up. [But Amara] Okereke flowers into magnificence.

Okereke’s ambitious Eliza can hold her own. Harry Hadden-Paton, reprising the role from Broadway, is a riveting whirlwind of a Higgins. The supporting cast is more of a mixed bag ... Most glaringly, Amos is miscast as Doolittle.

The Times (UK)

This is a very decent, very stylish, eventually quite audacious My Fair Lady. Not, though, a great one. If the evening doesn’t raise the heart rate, the gear change at the end ensures a decent revival ends up somewhere more memorable.

The Stage (UK)

What makes Bartlett Sher’s ... production exciting is clear: two lead performances. Almost everything else, unfortunately, is problematic. Conductor Gareth Valentine has a hugely luxurious 36-piece band ... [that is] badly muddied by the baffling decision to smother them with orchestral amplification.

Time Out London
May 19th, 2022

Bartlett Sher’s production is slick and accomplished, but loses the narrative's subtlety in a crowd-pleasing burst of top-hatted kitsch. This production will just about satisfy its fans, without offering enough to win over sceptics.

Sher's WD40-approach to what is often a rusty and cantankerous musical has gelled well in places. The contemporary pertinence is hard to avoid – the patronising and privileged ... [is] ignorant. The break-out star, as well she should be, is Amara Okereke's Eliza ... a performer who is primed to leave her mark on the theatre world.
