Jason O'Connell Leads a New Adaptation of Cyrano

”Cyrano de Bergerac” gets a new look at Two River Theater.

Cyrano, an adaptation of Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac, is now in performances at Two River Theater (a coproduction with Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival). The show is set to open September 27 and will run through October 13 in Two River's Rechnitz Theater. Take a look at brand-new production photos below.

Jason O'Connell (Two River's Noises Off and The Merry Wives of Windsor) leads a five-person cast as the larger-than-life Cyrano, the brilliant thinker, wordsmith, and swordsman. He's a thorny romantic with an outsized reputation and a barely contained love for his childhood sweetheart, Roxane (Britney Simpson).

Rounding out the company are Luis Quintero (Christian, Sister Marthe, Bellerose), Chris Thorn (DeGuiche, Ragueneau, Montfleury, Cadet), and Nance Williamson (LeBret, Duenna, Lise, Monk, Unsavory Character).
