Review from The Dallas Morning News
Article about the cast

"The Dallas Summer Musicals' My Fair Lady shows what a superbly talented cast
can do with a classic show when it works with a fine director who takes the script's
demands seriously. No wild rethinkings here—merely the best-acted musical to grace
the Music Hall stage in recent memory...

"Marla Schaffel and Norman Large made a strong pair in My Fair Lady on Tuesday night.
Marla Schaffel, a Tony Award frontrunner last year for Jane Eyre, has
re-imagined Eliza Doolittle, making George Bernard Shaw's flower girl
more intelligent, more determined, more volatile and more enthusiastic than ever before."
