With its original setting and the glorious costumes of 17th century France, this classic romantic comedy has been given a 21st century feel with a snappy modern adaptation. Cyrano tells the story of a great swordsman with a beautiful soul, hampered by a huge nose that makes him believe he is incapable of being loved by the beautiful Roxane. When he learns that Roxane and a handsome young soldier named Christian are infatuated with each other, he writes beautiful love letters for her suitor that lead to a calamitous love triangle. Filled with swordplay, romance and humor, this is the funniest Cyrano you will ever see. Rated PG.
“A show that can make you feel again as deeply and unashamedly as you did when you were 17. … Cyrano, with all of its heartbreaking panache, achieves that in aces. Three cheers and a flourish of a feathered hat to that.” – Oregon ArtsWatch
