I was so looking forward to this production of Cyrano. Peter Dinklage is a fine actor who does not have to be working anywhere.  He is a worker bee.  Even his many talents, however, could not lift this production up.  The design was brilliant, but the script and direction were odd.  Nothing quite fit, and I remained unengaged.  Which was not my intention.  Read the full review HERE.
