Cyrano (the 1950 version) is one of my husband's favorite movies. Although I thought the acting was good, I didn't care for the adaptation. I also thought the cussing could have been left out and the innuendos. I'm not sure why that is always included in a modern adaptation. Ugh! Part of what makes Cyrano Cyrano is his masterful use of language. We were disappointed in this production and chose to leave early.

I didn't know anything about it going in, but I fell in love. Very unique style for the adaptation, but it really worked.

James McAvoy was SUBLIME. Without him, the stripped-down production (no period costumes, barren white box set) and pretentious staging would have been awful. But James is a Master of his craft—and worth the full price of the ticket. Five stars for McAvoy, two stars for the adaptation and direction.

James McAvoy was the only thing I liked about this play. There was a lot of bad language and a gay kiss that were not at all necessary to the story. The play was done in an artsy weird way and wasn't at all what I was expecting. There were many elements that had me wondering why they were there. It was just too out there for me, so much so that I had a hard time relating to it. Knowing what I know now I would not have gone to see it.

James McAvoy is pure gold. I wish I could watch his performance on a loop. Anita-Joy Uwajeh was a phenomenal Roxane. The entire cast is magic. I feel so blessed I got to witness this work of art.

James McAvoy is a force to behold. Amazing performance.

A wonderful adaptation! I did enjoy it but it took me a while to be comfortable with the style of the adaptation. On the other hand, I imagine that at the time the play may well have been ribald and rhyming. Wonderful performances from the leads!
