From the show:

The poet with panache–and a legendary nose–plays anew under the Theater Tent:

Longtime HVSF company member Jason O’Connell leads a five-person cast as his own Cyrano, the brilliant thinker, wordsmith, and swordsman. He’s a thorny romantic with an outsized reputation and a barely-contained love for his childhood sweetheart, Roxane. Can she sniff out the truth in this sophisticated suitor’s heart before it’s too late?

Cool interpretation, Great acting, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You enjoy outdoor theater and for Jason O'Connell who is just fantastic as Cyrano + innovative script

Don't see it if You want a conventional approach to de Bergerac - this is a cross between the more comedic approaches and the heart wrenching classic

Excruciating, Insipid, Overrated, Slow, Great staging

See it if Peter Dinklage cannot sing and is a very unconvincing Cyrano

Don't see it if No, don’t see it

Wonderful

See it if you loved Peter Dinklage from Game of Thrones. And if you loved the classic romantic tragedy.

Don't see it if you loved (or hated) the classic movie with Jose Ferrer.

Great singing, Must see, Delightful, Entertaining, Great acting

See it if If you love Tina Turner. And who doesn’t! You will want to see this! The energy of the cast will bring you to your feet!

Don't see it if If you don’t like musicals or want a quite night out. Too many great voices to just sit there

See it if the staging, acting and directing were spot on. very engaging.

Don't see it if if you don't like lots of dialogue then this show is not for you.
