CYRANO
by Edmond Rostand, Translation by Michael Hollinger
Adapted by Michael Hollinger & Aaron Posner
Directed by Peter Wiley

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, it’s the ultimate swashbuckling romantic comedy/adventure! Swordplay! Wordplay! Love and roses and really long noses!

“CYRANO” by Edmond Rostand, adapted by Michael Hollinger (Opus, Incorruptible) and Aaron Posner (Stupid F*ing Bird, The Chosen) is an updated 2011 version of the classic 1897 French comedy of the hopelessly romantic swordsman with the ridiculously long nose. During war time in 17th-Century France, the hero Cyrano is in love with the beautiful Roxane but too afraid to express his feelings to her because of doubts about his own ugliness. Instead, he befriends the handsome but dull Christian and helps the younger man to win Roxane’s heart by writing elegant love letters and teaching him the arts of courtship and poetry. Their adventures unfold from there, taking the audience on a compelling journey through the romantic streets of Paris and the dramatic battlefields of France.

Critics have described this modern adaptation as “rhythmically beautiful, humorous, emotionally resonant and convincing… .This version of Cyrano de Bergerac is interesting and entertaining, a thoughtful piece of work which makes many bold choices. This is by far the funniest CYRANO you will ever see…. Three cheers and a flourish of a feathered hat to that!”

Featuring some of the most clever, touching poetry ever written, this ode to love reminds us that sometimes what you’re looking for is… right under your nose.
