Cyrano de Bergerac

Closed November 25, 2012

Mr. Hodge is as light and oxygenating as air, even as the pure physical impact of his performance sets you reeling.

Ben Brantley, New York Times

Why See Cyrano de Bergerac?

Cyrano de Bergerac, burdened with a pronounced proboscis, compensates by possessing great panache - but is it enough to win the heart of the lovely Roxane? Starring Tony Award winner Douglas Hodge.

Cyrano de Bergerac - poet, philosopher, an expert swordsman with incredible wit - pines for the beautiful Roxane but is too shy to pursue her. The reason? His extraordinarily large nose.

When he learns that Roxane loves the handsome but inarticulate Christian, Cyrano writes eloquent love letters to Roxane on Christian's behalf.

An enduring masterwork with some of the most ingenious lines ever written for the stage, Cyrano de Bergerac is 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.
