Cyrano de Bergerac Presented by OpenStage Theatre
A sophisticated turn of phrase … or … a pretty face? Which will Roxane choose?
Larger than life Cyrano ‒ soldier, philosopher, poet and adventurer ‒ is in love with the resplendent Roxane. Hampered by his self-perceived lack of beauty due to his absurdly large nose, Cyrano offers handsome fellow cadet, Christian, his poetic mastery of language to woo his beloved Roxane. As she falls under the spell of Cyrano’s beautiful letters, believing they are coming from Christian’s beautiful face, war propels the love triangle beyond whimsical antics into love and heartbreak. Full of wordplay and swordplay, as well as the most famous nose in history, Cyrano is a night of comedy, mistaken identity, and romantic tragedy under the stars. Walk-in, bike in or drive-in! Featuring nightly food trucks.
