Theatre allows us to enjoy ourselves for a time, and being able to share this wonderful, timeless story with ALL of our friends is one way to unify our community despite circumstances.
"Cyrano," Rostand's masterpiece, tells the true but fictionalized story of the gifted poet, musician, soldier, and duelist who is kept from expressing his love for the beautiful Roxanne by the shame he feels about his rather large nose! Alternately funny, dramatic, witty, touching, and tragic, Ms. Frankel's adaptation makes this wonderful story accessible to everyone.
