In Jason O'Connell and Brenda Withers's adapted play Cyrano, who wins the battle of beauty versus brains? Cyrano is a swordsman, philosopher, poet, and raconteur — everything that the love of his life, Roxane, would want. There's just one colossal problem: his nose, rendering him unworthy of her affection (or so he believes). Enter Christian, a handsome, yet tongue-tied, young cadet equally smitten by Roxane. Surely together this unlikely pair can win the fair maiden's heart. A cast of five plays a multitude of roles in this imaginative version of the classic tale.
Edmond Rostand's 1897 play, Cyrano de Bergerac, is a classic of the stage at almost operatic proportions and this fantastic retelling, directed by by Robert Walsh, brings the story into the 21st Century.
