My Fair Lady possibly set for West End run after glowing reviews

Dominic West has received a number of glowing reviews for his performance as Professor Higgins in My Fair Lady.

Many theatre fans across the UK will have booked short breaks in Sheffield in order to catch the show at the city's Crucible Theatre but, if reviews are anything to go by, then it could be set for even bigger things.

The Daily Mail's Quentin Letts described it as a "great show", before suggesting that "a West End run must surely beckon" while asserting that West himself does "radiate a dashing dastardliness".

The story tells of Elize Doolittle, who plays a downtrodden Edwardian flower girl that a professor tries to pass off as an well-spoken, upper class lady, with the role played well by Carly Bawden.

Indeed, reviewers reserved special praise for Bawden's performance, with Letts claiming that she put in a "super performance", before adding: that "she has a sweet, strong singing voice and buckets of heart".
