Cyrano de Bergerac
By Edmond Rostand
Translated by Brian Hooker
Directed and Adapted by Judith Allen
July 8 – July 30, 2022
A sophisticated turn of phrase ... or ... a pretty face? Which will Roxane choose?
Larger than life Cyrano ‒ soldier, philosopher, poet, and adventurer ‒ is in love with the resplendent Roxane. Hampered by his self-perceived lack of beauty due to his absurdly large nose, Cyrano offers handsome fellow cadet, Christian, his poetic mastery of language to woo his beloved Roxane. As she falls under the spell of Cyrano’s beautiful letters, believing they are coming from Christian’s beautiful face, war propels the love triangle beyond whimsical antics into love and heartbreak. Full of wordplay and swordplay, as well as the most famous nose in history, Cyrano is a night of comedy, mistaken identity, and romantic tragedy under the stars. Bring your lawn chair or blanket and walk-in, bike in, or drive-in! Featuring nightly food trucks.
