The Santa Barbara Center for the Performing Arts in association with Santa Barbara Symphony presented My Fair Lady in Concert on June 16, 2013 at 3:00 PM at The Granada Theatre. With Greg as "Alfred P. Doolittle," Jonathan Pryce as "Henry Higgins," Laura Michelle Kelly as "Eliza Doolittle," Cloris Leachman as "Mrs. Higgins," Florence Lacey as "Mrs. Pearce," Max von Essen as "Freddy Eynsford-Hill," and Michael York as "Colonel Pickering." Directed and choreographed by Tony nominee Marcia Milgrom Dodge. The Santa Barbara Symphony performed the score under the direction of James Moore.
It was fitting that on this Father's Day, some of the afternoon's biggest ovations went to Gregory Jbara, who played Eliza's father, Alfred P. Doolittle. Jbara stopped the show twice, once during the first act when he sang 'With a Little Bit of Luck' and then again in act two with 'Get Me to the Church On Time'.- Charles Donelan, Santa Barbara Independent
The Kennedy Center presented My Fair Lady in Concert for its annual Spring Gala black-tie event on May 5, 2013 at 8:00 PM. With Greg as "Alfred P.

Directed and choreographed by Tony nominee Marcia Milgrom Dodge. Orchestra conducted by James Moore.
Gregory Jbara played Eliza's father, Alfred P. Doolittle, fresh off of his Tony...winning stint as another Dad in Billy Elliott the Musical. He was raunchy and hilarious with unsurpassed comic timing, especially in several improvised moments, one involving an afghan throw and his trouser button.- Jessica Vaughan, DCMTA
