Jennifer Garner Gets Mixed Reviews

Jenplay

We love Jennifer Garner here on Celebrity Baby Scoop, so I had to check out the reviews after her debut Broadway performance in the revival of "Cyrano de Bergerac on Nov 1st.

"The latest in a series of boldface film and television actresses to test their stage legs (including Julia Roberts and Claire Danes), Ms. Garner seems by far the most comfortable," New York Times critic Ben Brantley wrote.

"If she’s a tad stilted in the big tragic finale, her comic timing is impeccable," he said.

The Daily News said Garner "brings her natural beauty to Roxane, but she’s miscast." Critic Joe Dziemianowicz added "Garner goes from little-girl breathy to Kathleen Turner husky, and either way she breathes no conviction into her role."

"Broadway’s ‘Cyrano’ needs more than a nose job. It’s in need of a heart transplant," he said.

Reviews are certainly mixed, which is a good thing.  Would you guys go see her perform?
