Last night, PBS’ Great Performances showed Kevin Kline and Jennifer Garner’s performance of Cyrano de Bergerac from the Broadway run in late 2007/early 2008. I thought Kline was magnificent as Cyrano. However, Garner overacted everything about Roxanne. I wanted to like her and perhaps the problem is that I went in expecting an amazing performance from her. She’s lucky that she was paired with Kline. If it was a lesser actor, the show would have been toast.
