The Porthouse Theatre's treatment of this musical theater classic is significantly less grand and interesting than what patrons have grown accustomed to. It is more in line with dinner theater, but without the beverage service or 50/50 raffle.

Greg Violand and Kayce Cummings make a winsome pair in the Lerner and Loewe classic MY FAIR LADY, the famous tale of an egotistical phoneticist who tutors a Cockney flower seller to speak the Queen’s English in an effort to pass her off as a high-class lady.
Lead actress Cummings gets to squawk and snort plenty as the feisty Eliza, who exhibits great physical humor and decidedly unladylike body language.

This show about the Cockney ragamuffin Eliza Doolittle being transformed into a refined lady never gets old, as long as the performers are up to the task. And happily, this production at the Porthouse Theatre has two stellar performers in the key roles.
