CD Reviews

Don' be FOOLED! This is NOT from the Broadway Show!!

"I bought this after searching for years for the Broadway cast of 1994. I mistakenly thought this was an English version of the same play. Far from it. If you want a badly sung nothing to do with Broadway version, then buy this album."
BAD, BAD Musical

"I'm not going to even mention how awful this recording is [....]I will tell you there is a german recording for their production of Cyrano: the Musical (w/ a bass singing Cyrano!) It's god awful too.Also, there is a symphonic recording of the musical by the Dutch National Radio Symphony (or something like that) which is quite good.Third, I've seen a bootleg video of the broadway production which is the worst audio and the best version. If you can find it; GET IT! Anne Runndolfson (am I spelling it correctly?) gives the most amazing performance as Roxanne. (BTW- Bennett Jordan plays the lead and is great too.)"
Deffinately not even close to the Broadway version

"Remember *the only recording of the 1994 Broadway version is the Dutch one.* There is no English recording, and I'd rather listen to that one which I don't understand than this one which I do. It makes a slight attempt to maintain the themes of integrity and honor from the original play, but other than a brief mention of staying set apart and doing one's best in the final song, it's equally guilty as any modernization of their greatest flaw: not realizing that the love story is secondary to the character study. Not only did the version that landed on Broadway keep this straight, but it also dived into character farther. There is no "Hate Me" or "Moonsong" on this CD."
