About this show

Cyrano de Bergerac, a swashbuckler straight out of the history books, is a master of swordplay and wordplay, but a "magnificent Mount Everest of a nose" blocks his path to true love--quite literally. From the ivy-twined balconies of Paris to the blood-soaked fields of the Thirty Years War, handsome, tongue-tied Christian borrows Cyrano's words to woo the beautiful Roxane. But is she falling for Christian's looks or Cyrano's soul? A cast of just three actors triangulates Rostand's classic love story into a charming, lightning-paced melodrama of duels, panache, hopeless sacrifice--and an enormous schnoz.
