The playbill for Taylor University’s performance of Cyrano de Bergerac, based on the translation written by Anthony Burgess of the play written by Edmund Rostand.
Performed November 10-12, 17-19, 2017 at the Mitchell Theatre.
Dashing, proud, and romantic, Cyrano is one of the most memorable figures in theatre history. Known throughout Paris for his unmatched bravery and the charm of his verse, poet Cyrano de Bergerac has one problem—his enormous nose. During an age of gallant musketeers and extravagant lifestyles, this beautiful soul is damned by his marred appearance. Not one to give up, Cyrano joins forces with the handsome but slow-witted soldier, Christian, to woo Roxane, the woman they both love. With Christian’s looks and Cyrano’s soul they quickly win her heart, but can Cyrano watch his beloved marry someone else? Equally hilarious and tragic, Edmond Rostand's classic verse play is one of the most popular romances to ever grace the stage.
