My Fair Lady at OSF in Ashland Oregon

March 27th, 2013 by Julie

Lady_Now_Playing_746x420George Bernard Shaw’s play  “Pygmalion”  comes to life in Oregon Shakespeare Festivals ” My Fair Lady”.

I have always loved this story of  a working class girl Eliza Doolittle who meets an upper class Professor  Henry Higgins outside a Theatre where she is selling flowers. With the help of the  wonderful music of Lerner and Loewe we are transported to early 1900′s London.

In this production there are all of  the songs that we love and are familiar with.  Rachael Warren as Eliza has a beautiful voice  and Jonathan Haugen as Henry Higgins has great comic timing and a much better voice than Rex Harrison in the film version. I especially loved Ken Robinson as Freddy Eynsford-Hill he was a real hoot.

The musical is a sheer delight, it had me hooked at the very beginning. I came out of the Theatre singing ” I could have danced all night ” and as the next line of the song goes I would have begged for more. Three hours was not enough for me I did wish for more.

Taming of the Shrew at the Bowmer Theatre in Ashland

March 14th, 2013 by Julie

taming of the shrewThis thoroughly modern version of Shakespeare’s comedy “ The Taming of the Shrew ” is a sheer delight. I loved every minute of it, with it’s contemporary references and Rockabilly band.

It’s a fresh, fun romp full of slap stick humor and foot tapping music.

Run, don’t walk to the box office to get your ticket’s you won’t be disappointed.
