“One of the best shows ever in the Festival’s history…Page’s bold, yet subtle, sad and moving interpretation of Cyrano surpasses expectation–and expectations were high. His Cyrano defines panache.”

North County Times

“In Patrick Page, Rostand’s sword-slinging poet has met his match. Page fills all three-plus hours of director Darko Tresnjak’s lyrical and bewitching production with such style and finesse that even when he’s offstage (which isn’t often), his character’s implicit presence is like an electrical charge.”

San Diego Tribune

“An irresistible triumph. Broadway veteran Patrick Page brings Cyrano gloriously to life in a production that possesses all the panache, wit and tragedy of its title character. Page’s Cyrano is both charismatic and ferocious, a delicate balancing act of bravado and sensitivity. He finds the center of Cyrano’s proud and tortured soul – and seems to do it effortlessly.”

“Patrick Page is perfection itself, offering us a multi-hued, complex character who is both admirable and insufferable, loud and brash, kind-hearted and tender. The astonishing performance is delicately nuanced, both thrilling and heart-breaking…not to be missed at any cost.”

SD News Network

“Patrick Page’s commanding Cyrano makes the time fly by. Where most performers accentuate the positive — the panache, the swashbuckling, the Disney of it all — Page faces the rift in the man head on. This Cyrano is layered. He admirably walks his own path but pays for being an absolute outsider.”

San Diego Weekly Reader

“This production has it all – fine acting, beautiful costumes, great lighting and, most of all, Patrick Page. It’s a tour de force performance. Page owns the role and commands the stage whenever he’s on it, which (fortunately) is most of the time. He is by turns fascinating, maddening, heartbreaking and funny, every nuance reflected in posture, gesture or a look.”

Gay and Lesbian Times

“Patrick Page is electrifying as the brilliant, sensitive cadet with the oversized olfactory organ. He IS Cyrano, in all his lovable, frustrating, self-aggrandizing and self-effacing glory. He steals and breaks our hearts.”

“Patrick Page, gives a pitch-perfect performance that shows not just the virtues of the man, but also his folly. His performance, wavering between bombastic bravado and self critique, should not be missed.”

“Patrick Page is absolutely incredible, capturing the entire audience with his masterful portrayal and his superb understanding of the text.”

Del Mar Village Voice

“There are raves so loud for Patrick Page’s performance in the lead you can probably hear them from here. Page cast a dark spell over Arizona audiences with his charismatic Dracula at Arizona Theatre Company, and has since become one of the most respected leading actors on Broadway…Definitely worth the trip to San Diego.”

AZCentral.com

“To say that the Old Globe’s Festival is all about one actor would probably be unfair…but there is some truth to it. For the audiences at Cyrano De Bergerac sit spell-bound for 3 ½ hours, not moving, not even breathing, to witness the performance of one actor—Patrick Page as Cyrano.”

PIX Magazine

“As Cyrano, Patrick Page gives a pitch-perfect performance that shows not just the virtues of the man, but also his folly. His performance, wavering between bombastic bravado and self critique, should not be missed.”
