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.

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. ;)

Although I still favor Jose Ferrer's and Gerald Depardieu's interpretation of Rostand's ill-fated hero, this taped version of the Broadway revival still warrants your attention. Kline's take on Cyrano is a little muted compared to the other two actors but he's still effective and of course witty on occasion. As for Garner whom I think gave an understated performance in "Juno" she seems a bit over the top but she has her moments and is miles ahead of the vapid Mala Powers in the Ferrer film--so she's acceptable but not terrible. As for Sunjata, I was somewhat disappointed in him since I found little in him that would make Roxanne fall for him. But Garner brings enough of the coquettishness that perhaps her broad portrayal can be forgiven and the supporting players particularly Chris Sarandon as the Captain of the guards are fine. But by all means see it for Kline's interpretation.

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.

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.

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

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.

I didn't expect to enjoy this...but wow! was this good! If you can get through the first 15-20 min you will be hooked...those first 15min or so are the hardest (not that it's bad) but after that ...it gets very good!
