There was barely room for the 7 piece Spamalot band at the Pinter, I wonder how their My Fair Lady orchestra will squeeze in?

I hope it transfers because it was absolutely exquisite. Up there with Matilda for how joyous it was.

Oh I really hope this does transfer! Dominic West has already stated in an interview with the Guardian I think that if it were to transfer it would be with Carley! I think it would be a snug fit but a good fit at the Harold Pinter theatre! Even if it doesn't have a big pit, there are ways around it (band off stage/in rooms?). I think the name itself 'My Fair Lady' is a draw in itself as its so well know and with the already fantastic 5 star reviews, they already have great promotional material :) *fingers crossed*

I saw this last night, was very lucky to book tickets just after Christmas, SO pleased I managed to get through the snow to see it, what a fantastic evening. Carley and Dominic gave brilliant performances and the Crucuble was a great intimate venue for it, very well staged.

Can't praise the production enough, superb. I hope it transfers so everyone can get a chance to see it.

Titan your correct, Cameron has said he isn't going to allow a transfer, as it will then put off any chance of reviving his own production in the near future.

Sad. I was really hoping it would come into town having missed it in Sheffield, such a shame.

Selfish Cameron! This production is wonderful and deserves a transfer! Sheffield Theatres deserves more recognition in my opinion as everything I've see produced there recently has been wonderful.

Agreed - the Crucible space is so well used making the Sheffield Theatres productions generally fabulous. I loved My Fair Lady, and although, for me it didnt quite top the Nationals production, it was still a fantastic production with gorgeous performances. It would be such a shame if it wasn't more widely seen.

What about another cooperation with the Old Vic? Transfer next season. After the two Q&As and three performances of MFL I have been to my impression is that's the kind of thing they imagine - where they can trademark it as an original Crucible production.
King Lear (NT), Twelve Angry Men (Garrick),  Mojo (Harold Pinter), Coriolanus (2x, Donmar), Henry V (Noel Coward), Strangers on a Train (Gielgud), Fortunes Fool (Old Vic), Punchdrunk's The Drowned Man (Temple Studios), Jeeves and Wooster (Duke of York's), 1984 (Almeida), Red Velvet (Tricycle), Bring up the Bodies (Swan), Wolf Hall (Swan), The Mistress Contract (Royal Court), Versailles (Donmar), Blithe Spirit (Guilgud), Jane Eyre (Bristol Old Vic)
