Editorial Reviews

Now on DVD, this romantic Broadway hit starring Oscar winner Kevin Kline (A Fish Called Wanda), Jennifer Garner (Juno) and Daniel Sunjata (TV's Rescue Me), wowed both critics and audiences. This classic tale of romance and tragedy tells the touching story of the big-nosed poet and philosopher Cyrano who feeds the handsome but empty-headed Christian the honey'd words to win the love of the beautiful Roxanne.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensational January 9, 2009
By Nick
Format:DVD
I thought the play was wonderful. Kline and the rest of the cast were fabulous, I didn't think I would like it, but before I knew it 2 1/2 hours was over. My only complaint is that I found Jennifer Garner sort of obnoxious and overdone or something. I just couldn't see why any man let alone two men would fall so in love with here. But her rendition of Roxanne takes nothing away from the show. Highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Must Have. February 18, 2009
By F. Funk
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A phenominal cast. Extremely entertaining. Kevin Kline is superb. Jennifer Garner and Chris Sarandon are great additions to this classic romance. Cyrano is a must have. You'll watch it over and over again and find new nuances everytime. A shining example of what the best of Broadway has to offer. Bravo for Cyrano!Cyrano de Bergerac

5.0 out of 5 stars A TRULY FINE PERFORMANCE February 16, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was fortunate enough to see Jose Ferrer recreate his movie Cyrano de Bergerac in the 70's, live in Nyack, NY and spoke to Mr. Ferrer afterwards. Although he was the Sean Connery, in James Bond movies, of Cyranos, I must say that Kevin Kline and Jennifer Garner did a wonderful job as well. Their performance was much funnier than the original screen version. Jennifer Garner was alive and vibrant, which was missing from all other renditions.

One of the best performances I have ever seen. Wonderful story, but extremely sad at the end. I cannot express how highly I recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most enjoyable PBS production in recent memory January 19, 2009
Format:DVD
My husband and I watched Cyrano on the recommendation of our local newspaper's tv critic. It is the best thing I've seen lately. Kevin Kline was fabulous as Cyrano, the rest of the cast does an admirable job as well. My only disappointment is that the show is no longer playing on Broadway; if I had known, I would have gone to see it live. I guess, the DVD will have to do. ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! January 7, 2009

I had the opportunity to see this during its Broadway run. The PBS presentation is a wonderful reminder of my Broadway experience. Kevin Kline is outstanding. I can't wait to own this.

4.0 out of 5 stars A different Cyrano, but very good still... December 14, 2009
Format:DVD
I saw this on Broadway just moments after the stagehands strike ended in December 2007. Kevin Kline takes a very understated approach to Cyrano, a character usually played with bravado and bluster. Such an approach might seem at odds with the character as written, but it really worked for me (it might be that I'm a Kevin Kline fan). His Cyrano was almost embarrassed by his acclaim, as if the people around him had built him up into a legend that he didn't want to be. Jennifer Garner and Daniel Sunjata, unfortunately, are just so-so. Roxane is such a cipher that it's hard to see what about her Cyrano is so attracted to, and without a strong personality in the role, she just kind of disappears.

I'm looking forward to seeing what was captured on video.

Now all they have to do is release "The Seagull" from Shakespeare in the Park 2001: Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christopher Walken, Natalie Portman, John Goodman, Marcia Gay Harden, Stephen Spinella, Larry Pine, Debra Monk, directed by Mike Nichols. Best thing I've ever seen on a stage.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful version of the classic October 24, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Kevin Kline gives an excellent performance as Cyrano. The performance, staging, are so good in fact that even the verses seem contemporary. My teen age children enjoyed it, and I bought it because my sixteen year old son saw half of it on vacation and wanted to see the whole thing.

This modern reading of Rostand's "Cyrano de Bergerac" makes use of Anthony Burgess' translation and adaptation. Lavish sets and costumes are captured in beautiful color. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars This is not Cyrano.
I know that Kevin Kline is popular and that his performance was widely praised. I have liked him in several things. But he is a terrible Cyrano. Really terrible. Read more
