Reviews & Awards
My Fair Lady is probably the last line in true operettas, and in many ways is something of an anachronism, being an exact contemporary of West Side Story. For that reason it has never been a favourite show of mine, but last week Barnes and Richmond Operatic Society achieved something I thought was well-nigh impossible; they caused me to enjoy a production of it.
The secret of the success lay, I think, in playing down the sentimental side of the show, allowing much of the original dialogue to keep the show buoyant.
