From a grand, romantic age comes the story of an aging warrior-poet and the woman he adores. Cyrano de Bergerac's flashing rapier and devastating wit strike fear in those who would mock his grotesquely large nose, but beneath his flamboyant and spirited façade lies an all-too-human heart that yearns for the beautiful Roxane. Believing he can never be worthy of her, he pours his love into letters with which the handsome and inarticulate Christian woos her. Too late, Cyrano learns that the lady cherishes not the physical container, but the magnificent spirit it contains. Laird Williamson directs.
