Wonderful venue, great actors! Really draws you in to the story. Cyrano was excellent! Make sure to bring bug spray and warm clothes! The evening got cool and ended up with a few mosquito bites.

The acting was great. The setting was unbearable (sun beating down on us--everyone using their programs to shade their eyes). We had to leave at intermission.

Description

By Edmond Rostand

A timeless tale of courage, honor and unrequited love. Featuring Artistic Director Jack Hickey as Cyrano, France’s greatest warrior and poet, who is in love with the beautiful Roxanne. Cyrano’s legendarily large nose, however, causes him to doubt that he could ever win her love, leading him to court her by proxy, through the handsome yet vapid Christian. Cyrano is a beautiful, funny and touching story filled with swordfights, romance, and laughter; and brimming with Rostand’s beautiful poetry.
