Cyrano De Almost Worth It...

Cyrano De Bergerac is the final show of the season at Trinity Rep -- and it was almost good. I was impressed with the production and found my self surprised at how fun the production was -- until it ground to a halt with the final scene.

Oh my freakin' god...couldn't that lame duck--wrap up the plot points--die Cyrano DIE ALREADY-- scene be adapted -- or better -- cut from the play?

Up until then -- the production works. After that point it dies dies DIES! Gack! Blech! An otherwise fine production was pretty much ruined by the meandering stale end.

Oh well. Nice try.
