About the show

Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning actor Peter Dinklage ("Game of Thrones") stars in this new musical version of the classic tale of unrequited love and ghostwritten letters. More…

From the show:

A raw and transporting new version of the classic tale of unrequited love and ghostwritten letters, Cyrano tells the story of a proud man who, believing himself unlovable, agrees to woo the woman he loves for another. With a charged contemporary immediacy to the language, this adaptation by Erica Schmidt (All the Fine Boys) mines this enduring, human story for its deep vein of heartbroken yearning, with haunting and compelling music by members of the Grammy Award-winning band The National and the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning actor Peter Dinklage in the title role.

Banal, Slow, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if You are a Peter Dinklage fan. He's fun to watch and sings pretty well also (with a DEEP voice). Jasmine C-Jones (orig. Hamilton cast).

Don't see it if You want a polished show, catchy tunes (the music stinks), good staging. This is a work in progress that probably should be discarded.

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."
