The best, by far...
13 September 2001 | by (Toronto, CANADA) – See all my reviews

This is the fabulous, and if memory serves, unabridged production of the wonderful Brian Hooker translation of Cyrano. Even after all these years, it stays in my memory. Gerard...Jose...great actors, but Peter Donat will always and forever be Cyrano to me.

The production blends humor, romance, action, and drama in equal measure, and so many small moments that usually get missed in other productions of Cyrano stand out and shine.

The cast is legendary and all superb in their roles, and the physical production is faithful to its roots as a staged version produced by the A.C.T. in San Francisco while taking a satisfyingly minimal and non-intrusive approach to capturing the show on tape. And yet, it never feels like a taped play. Not to disagree with the gentleman who wrote a previous comment, but I do recall that the production is in full color.

Please...if there is anyone out there reading this with any influence...let this production be released on video so generation after generation will have the chance to see a Cyrano de Bergerac that can awaken the romantic in even the most jaded heart.
