Cyrano is a nobleman with a tremendous wit and an enormous nose. All of Paris adores him except for his true love Roxane, who can’t see past his all-too-prominent facial feature. Instead, she falls for a handsome young cadet named Christian. But when Christian admits he’s tongue-tied with Roxane, Cyrano gives him the romantic words guaranteed to win her heart. With Christian’s looks and Cyrano’s language, it’s a foolproof plan! Or is it? 

An enduring masterwork with some of the most ingenious lines ever written for the stage, CYRANO DE BERGERACis a clever and touching story about the power of love, the art of wordplay and the joy of finding what you’ve always wanted right under your nose.

Written by French poet-dramatist Edmond Rostand, Cyrano de Bergerac wasfirst produced at the Théâtre de la Porte Saint-Martin, Paris on December 28, 1897 and had an American premiere on Broadway at the Garden Theatre on October 3rd 1898.

Major support for Cyrano de Bergerac is provided by Beth and Ravenel Curry.
