Profound, Overrated, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if Peter dinklage is superb as is Jones. Not as good as past Cyranos that I have seen. Not a big spectacle show with great casting.

Don't see it if If you have seen it on Bway, a much better dh oil w with a better cast. This one gets slow at times.

Romantic, Slow, Disappointing, Good acting

See it if u want to see a stirring, witty perf by Dinklage (who's no singer!) in an otherwise lackluster & unnecessarily musicalized version of Cyrano

Don't see it if u expect a high-energy, swashbuckling version of Rostand's play or Cyrano's prominent proboscis; u hope to discover a memorable new score.

Sure peter drinklage as cyrano can't sing, but he embodies him well in this charming musical version of this durable play

See it if creative staging; well-sung songs esp by J Jones/Roxanne; Drinklage's engaging; villain/De Guiche made 3 dimensional

Don't see it if songs pleasant not memorable, dumbed down 4 Drinklage who's not a singer; I've seen funnier versions; ending is maudlin/not moving Read more

Quirky, Romantic, Ambitious, Great writing, Great acting

See it if Classic reimagining in a play with music w/o prosthetic where the facial flaw is substituted for some other subtext:He still is left-swiped.

Don't see it if Uncharacteristically weak showing from the New Group. The lessened musicality diminishes the poetic beauty of the source material. Read more

Quirky, Ineffectual music & lyrics, Disappointing, Insipid, Banal

See it if you are a Dinklage fan, love the story and don't expect too much from the direction or production.

Don't see it if you're counting on a nose, great music/lyrics, memorable songs, great direction. Repetitive music uses mostly five notes per boring song. Read more

Ambitious, Funny, Intelligent, Great staging, Enchanting

See it if You want to see some beautiful singing, great acting, and wonderfully subtle choreography that added beautiful depth to the story.

Don't see it if You expect super interesting songs, or a swashbuckling adventure. Peter Dinklage is not a singer, but he tries and his acting is superb.

Uneven, Tedious, Some good singing, Lacks panache

See it if you're​ a Dinklage fan & want to see him in a musical role. His acting is fine, singing less so, though serviceable. Others very good.

Don't see it if you don't want to see a truncated version of Cyrano with little panache & much of Rostand's poetic language missing. Music hit & miss. Read more

3/5 Stars "It’s hard to fall in love with this confounding production...Schmidt has excised all the poetry...Most of the full-fledged numbers stop the show dead in its tracks...Yet Dinklage makes you care...Schmidt has elicited a captivating performance from this wonderfully expressive actor."
