An unabashed romance set in the 1640s, with a swashbuckling hero, a case of hidden identity, and a passionate love story. Flamboyant Cyrano is a skilled swordsman and a gifted poet, yet his unusually large nose prevents him from declaring his love for the beautiful and brainy Roxane, who is enamored of handsome Christian. Will Roxane fall for Christian's dashing looks or Cyrano's daring poetry? "After all, a kiss--what is it? A wordless, whispered lover's vow; a promise made and fulfilled at once..."
The regional premiere by Edmond Rostand; translated by Michael Hollinger; adapted by Michael Hollinger and Aaron Posner; and directed by Joe Chvala.
