The whole cast was wonderful but Stephen Fry truly rocked the house as Professor Higgins.

excellent performance

the voice actors were excellent in the first chapter. having not seen the stage play, I was sometimes a bit confused. but overall it was a fun listen. the second chapter continues the story but the narrator's speech pattern and some mouth noises were distracting. after speeding the player up to about 1.4x the mouth noises were easily ignored and the story was interesting.

amazing story

the author never makes it 100% clear what their narrative is interested in accomplishing, as it should be. Well worded and worth your time.

Did I miss...

....where it said this was an edited version? I just consulted a script and there are scenes missing. That's the only thing that kept it from being five stars across the board.

Great story, of course, and outstanding cast!

Stephen Fry does his usual terrific job ... but the other actors are absolutely spectacular!

I must admit that I was confused by the apparent epilogue. I couldn't figure out who wrote it or what it was doing there. Apparently, George Bernard Shaw had written that epilogue, which explains how it all turned out. Very cool ... especially for those of us who had seen My Fair Lady and wondered if that curious, but less-than-ambiguous ending was the same ending as in the original by Shaw.

Lovely surprise

One of my all time favorite movies is “My fair Lady”. It introduced me to G. B. Shaw and his works. There is nothing like well thought out and instrumented dialogue. And it is brought to life by those who love the writing word. Keep it coming

A good, solid classic

I enjoyed this thoroughly but would say that there are parts of the story that are dated. Of course that is bound to happen with an early 20th century play. Also, with an excellent cast.

Excellent!

I loved this, I thought that George Bernard Shaw's voice
and Stephen Fry's was very apt
for this. I did not like Eliza Doolittle's voice after her transfermation into a lady though. Thought it was a bit long.
