- Who needs Google Earth when you’ve got Henry Higgins? Seriously, this dude can determine where you’re from just by listening to the tone of your voice. I can differentiate between a Brooklyn and Southern accent, but that’s the extent of my abilities. Professor Higgins can determine which district a person is from. Awesome.
- I loved the arguments/discourses/discussions about language, and Shaw showed how superficial people can be. When Eliza Doolittle talked and dressed like a duchess, nobody cared about who she really was. They just accepted her, but I bet they would’ve been horrified if they found out she was a “common guttersnipe.”
- I love Colonel Pickering. That is all.
- Freddie, Eliza’s main love interest, was boring. He had no gumption, and I could totally imagine Eliza bossing him around.
- There’s a hilarious essay (??) at the end of the play where Shaw discussed marriage prospects, and why Eliza couldn’t end up with a character who shall remain nameless in this post
- Totally entertained by this play, particularly by the repartee between Eliza and Henry Higgins.
