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.

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.
