VIDEO: Director James DeVita Discusses CYRANO DE BERGERAC AT American Players Theatre


Director James DeVita discusses directing CYRANO DE BERGERAC, as well as Cyrano as a character, at American Players Theatre.

Cyrano de Bergerac is a fearless soldier. A loyal braggadocio. And a man furiously self-conscious about his very protuberant nose. He's also a man in love with a woman (Roxane) who's in love with someone else (Christian), and promised in marriage to yet another (De Guiche). When Christian is assigned to Cyrano's platoon, Roxane begs him to protect her love, which Cyrano reluctantly agrees to do. And when Christian in turn begs Cyrano to help him woo Roxane, a plot unfurls that begs the question: does love truly lie in the eyes or in the soul?

The cast features James Ridge as Cyrano, Danny Martinez as Christian, Laura Rook as Roxanne, Alejandro Cordoba as Brissaille, Robert R. Doyle as Cuigy / Ensemble, Ty Fanning as D'Artagnan, Chike Johnson as LeBret, Andrew Rathgeber as Ligniere, Sarah Day as Cassandace / Ensemble, Elizabeth Reese as Barthenoide / Ensemble, Colleen Madden as Urimedonte / Ensemble, David Daniel as Ragueneau, Casey Hoekstra as Valvert, John Taylor Phillips as DeGuiche, Kelsey Brennan as Duenna/Ensemble, and Brian Mani as Montfleury / Ensemble.
