Greetings Fellow Bernadette Lovers! I've just returned from a wonderful two-week vacation and wanted to put in my two cents about what I saw in the West End.

"Stones in His Pockets" was really good. The two Irish actors played all of the characters so well. It was really funny and very touching as well. The highlight was when one of the cast members played an ego-driven Hollywood actress. He was outstandingly funny and physically became her without being campy or swishy. Wonderful!

"My Fair Lady" was an incredible experience. Imagine seeing this with a British cast in Theatre Royal Drury Lane! Not only was the performance great with Anthony Andrews (be still my heart!) as Henry Higgins but just being in that theater was awesome. It really is a shrine to some of the greatest actors of all time which made this really special. The highlight was definitely "Ascot Opening Day".

"Sexual Perversity in Chicago" - What an experience this was! Minnie Driver, Hank Azaria, Matthew Perry. Wow! It isn't Mamet's best play but the acting was really spot on. Especially Minnie and Hank who did the bitter, sacastic thing really, really well.

Sorry I missed the Tonys. I haven't yet seen Bernadette's performance but heard from a friend, who doesn't really care for her, that she was unbelievable. I'm really looking forward to watching the whole thing tonight.

Hello Mabel-
Thanks for posting your reviews! I think there's talk of bringing My Fair Lady back to Broadway-don't know if it has to do with the West End production or not. Seeing as there was a revival not too long ago,this seems quite recent. However,that can certainly change,as evidenced by the cancellation of Little Shop of Horrors (which would have drawn some very interesting discussions concerning eligibility for Tony time-would it be considered a new musical,since it was Off-Broadway? My guess would be no.)
