Cyrano de Bergerac
Douglas Hodge, who won a Tony as Albin in the 2010 revival of La Cage aux Folles, is nothing to sneeze at as the titular wit and swordsman in Roundabout’s attractive revival of Edmond Rostand’s classic 1897 rom-com about big noses and identity theft. Hodge is a magnetic whirlwind of energy without being hammy, but the safe, perfectly competent production feels a touch pointless so soon after the delightful 2007 revival starring Kevin Kline.
American Airlines Theatre, through November 25.
Marry Me a Little
Conceived in 1981 by gay duo Craig Lucas and Norman René, this dialogue-free revue was built around songs cut from Sondheim shows like Company and Follies. Jason Tam and Lauren Molina charm as lonely Brooklyn singles in this delightfully intimate revival — ushering in an exciting new era for Keen Company under new artistic director Jonathan Silverstein — which includes new gems like “Rainbows” from the unproduced Into the Woods film.
Clurman Theatre, closed October 27.
