Producing what has been called the perfect musical—as My Fair Lady has been lauded—is no small feat. But Tigard's Broadway Rose Theatre sets out to meet the challenge with its lively staging of the 1956 production. Based on George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, My Fair Lady tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a poor Cockney flower girl taught to speak like an aristocrat by wealthy phonetician Henry Higgins. Along the way student and teacher develop an unlikely attachment to each other, arguing their way through their differences. In the lead roles, Jazmin Gorsline and Kevin Connell deliver practiced and precise performances—from Connell’s careful shuffle away from Eliza’s space-invading father to the palpable joy on Gorsline’s face as she dances around the study. Darius Pierce also shines as Higgins’ alternately awkward and endearing friend, Colonel Pickering, and his welcome kindness and beautifully timed comic relief counterbalance Higgins’ insensitivity and self-importance. Director Sharon Maroney delivers both humor and big-scale dance numbers (like the enthusiastic “Get Me to the Church on Time”) to the stage with ease. With a talented ensemble and grand set and costumes, this My Fair Lady might not be perfect, but it’s a fun and engaging rendition of the classic musical.
