The Reviews

I just wanted to tell you that everyone is raving about the My Fair Lady Event. It was beyond fabulous!  Truly an exceptional night from start to finish. – Julie Chacona

Fifty-one years ago, my wife and I went on our first date to the Warner Theater to see the movie My Fair Lady. We had both grown up listening to the Broadway recording on our parents' LP's. Returning to the Warner tonight, together with friends, to see it in concert was nothing short of a life-affirming event. We were in tears most of the night.  It was such a beautiful evening. Thank you, Erie Phil and Erie Playhouse, so very much. – Chris and Charlotte Thomas

The show was outstanding! The orchestra made it so much better. I hope you will do another one next year. – Cynthia Weigand

The performance was incredible, and the entire evening was wonderful.  We are so fortunate to have so many highly talented people here, both from the Playhouse and from the Erie Phil. – John Baldwin
