New York City
The soulful poet/philosopher and dazzling swordsman Cyrano, falls for the lovely Roxane, but ashamed of his large nose, Cyrano is unable to woo her. Instead, when he learns that Roxane loves the handsome but inarticulate Christian, Cyrano writes love letters to Roxane on Christian’s behalf. She falls deeply in love with the author of the letters, unaware that Cyrano penned them. The swashbuckling adventure/romance is one of the greatest plays of world theatre.
