I wanted to like this production of Cyrano by The New Group, now playing Off-Broadway's Daryl Roth Theatre. I am a fan of Peter Dinklage (who has the briefest bio in the Playbill) having first seen him in the movie "Station Master." In addition, I heard great things about Erica Schmidt’s direction of Red Bull Theater’s Mac Beth earlier this. I was psyched.
The New Group kicks off its 2019-2020 Off-Broadway season with Cyrano, adapated and directed by Erica Schmidt and starring "Game of Thrones" favorite Peter Dinklage.
A developmental production of Cyrano was presented by Goodspeed Musicals in August 2018.

A raw and transporting new version of the classic tale of unrequited love and ghostwritten letters, Cyrano tells the story of a proud man who believing himself unlovable, agrees to woo the woman he loves for another. With a charged contemporary immediacy to the language, this adaptation by Erica Schmidt mines this enduring, human story for its deep vein of heartbroken yearning, with haunting and compelling music by members of the Grammy Award-winning band The National and the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning actor Peter Dinklage in the title role.
