Just my cup of tea: Gulfshore Playhouse’s version of ‘My Fair Lady’

edit-01

Long anticipated, “My Fair Lady” has finally opened at Gulfshore Playhouse, the company’s first musical in nine years.

And it’s cause for celebration, because the production is, in a word, stupendous.

This cast and creative team somehow manage to make this 60-year-old classic both timeless and fresh, which is quite a feat.

Among those of us of a certain age who are aware there was life on Broadway before “Wicked” or “Legally Blonde,” these Lerner and Loewe songs are extremely well known: “I Could’ve Danced All Night,” “On the Street Where You Live,” “The Rain in Spain,” “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly,” “Get Me to the Church On Time.”

But somehow, it all sounds new.

This production is unlike any other you’ve seen of this particular show: 10 actors perform all the roles, accompanied by two pianos that bookend the stage.
