But aside from a big set of pipes (which Prestinario surely has), the one thing that Eliza needs above all else is passion. And that, frankly, is what lifts this performance and, by extension, the entire show.

Andrea starred as Eliza in My Fair Lady, the Paramount Theatre’s inaugural production. She received a Broadwayworld.com nomination for Best Actress in a Musical. Hedy Weiss of the Chicago Sun-Times called her “hilarious” in “the best Ascot Gavotte Scene ever,” and said “Prestinario is a petite, fiery actress with a superb, bell-clear soprano streaked with a uniquely golden warmth.” Musical direction by Shawn Stengel, who helmed a 23-piece orchestra. Directed by Paramount Theatre Artistic Director Jim Corti.
