Another Fair Lady bites the dust...
Thanks to the Guardian for this.
Last week another episode was added to the soap opera that, appropriately enough, surrounds the National Theatre's My Fair Lady, when Martine McCutcheon's understudy was herself replaced by an understudy. To lose one Eliza might be considered an accident, but to lose two - well ...
It fell to Jonathan Pryce, McCutcheon's co-star, to nail the absurdity of the situation. "This will be your first Eliza," he told last Wednesday's sell-out crowd, "but it is my second of the day - and my third this week. Any member of the audience interested in playing Eliza can find applications at the door."
