“There are songs from my childhood that I had forgotten how much I love, and Four Seasons Theatre’s My Fair Lady is bursting with them. The tunes by Lerner and Loewe feel like the dictionary definition of a Broadway musical. Friday night in Wisconsin Union Theater, they had the crowd cheering.” Read the full Isthmus Review, The wonderful songs keep coming in Four Seasons Theate’s My Fair Lady.
