The one general gripe my friends had with it was that the music was lackluster, and it would have been a great comedic play. It was an enjoyable night out, to be sure, and Santino was awesome, but the music was unmemorable.

If that comment was directed at my post, I'm well aware of the origin of the play. What I meant was that turning Cyrano into a musical for this particular production was unnecessary - if anything, it hampers the material.

I was there for the first performance. I agree with the previous poster that Peter Dinklage acts the hell out of the part, and the instrumentals are lovely.

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with the process as well - aside from the irritation of having no theater, and thus no real theater seat map (which was a pain), the system itself worked very efficiently. It wa
