Disappointing, Slow, Romantic, Ambitious, Clever

See it if You are a fan of reduced cast productions of classic plays, this has only 5 actors

Don't see it if You expect Rostand, this adaptation bounces between comedy and drama awkwardly , don't expect Fiasco or Bedlam .

Awkward inclusion of contemporary songs/references, Below two rivers usual standards, Underwhelming cast, Little cleverness, Scattershot

See it if love Cyrano and simply MUST see the balcony scene again. This was my 3rd time seeing a production and that's the only memorable scene.

Don't see it if are expecting a charming farce. The humor is forced and the adaptation a missed opportunity. Actors are fine, but below TRT usual quality.
