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.

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.

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.

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. ;)

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

Kevin Klein gives possibly his greatest performance as the brave, brililant, but grotesquely over-schnozolad Cyrano who lives and dies with his white plume intact. In general the cast is brilliant and the play -- a classic of witticism -- had my uncultured family cheering for more. I didn't care for Jennifer Garner's alternatingly ditzy/screeching portrayal of Roxanne -- one of the few heroines in theater who gives as good as she gets in terms of clever banter -- but I was prepared to accept the idea that being so far above everyone but Cyrano in terms of wit and intellect had driven the poor woman a little mad.

Seemed too out of touch with the depth of the play. Too much was about trying to make the story funny--which it is--and not enough about the deep pain of Cyrano's lifelong fight to reject before he is rejected.

Kevin Kline rocks Cyrano. We watch this over and over. Jennifer Garner was obviously directed to play Roxanne over the top, but still worth watching for Kline's performance. Great intro to the theater if you have kids that you are trying to get interested in something besides action movies.
