Goodspeed Adds 8 Performances Of CYRANO Due to Popular Demand

Led by Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning actor Peter Dinklage as Cyrano alongside film actress Haley Bennett as Roxanne and film and TV actor Blake Jenner as Christian, the cast of this bold new musical includes Tom Riis Farrell, Damon J. Gillespie, Patrick Kerr, Laith Nakli, Gayle Samuels, Claire Saunders and Charlie Thurston.

This exciting musical is based on Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand and adapted by Erica Schmidt in collaboration with members of the Grammy Award-winning indie alternative band The National.

The legendary romance about a proud and impassioned poet who ghostwrites love letters is rekindled in a timeless and unconventional new musical. Cyrano agrees to woo his true love, Roxanne, on behalf of another in this classic tale of unrequited love. Music by Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National and lyrics by Matt Berninger of The National and Carin Besser drives this story of mistaken identity, selfless courage and buried desire. Directed by Erica Schmidt, Cyrano will begin August 3 at The Terris Theatre in Chester, Conn. This production must close on September 9, 2018.

Curtain times are Wednesdays at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 pm, Thursdays at 7:30 p.m., Fridays at 8:00 p.m., Saturdays at 3:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., and Sundays at 2:00 pm and 6:30 p.m.
