May 10, 2011: Sometimes a glass of moonshine is just what you need to take the sting out of life. David Leveaux’s disarming revival of “Cyrano de Bergerac,” which opened last night at the Richard Rodgers Theater, is a double shot of silvery hokum, sweet but surprisingly potent. And it goes down so easily, you’re drunk and misty-eyed before you know it.READ THE REVIEW

The soulful poet/philosopher and brilliant swordsman Cyrano de Bergerac, a cadet in the French Army, falls for the beautiful, strong-willed Roxane, but he is too ashamed of his large nose to tell her. Instead, when he learns that she loves the handsome but not-so-bright recruit Christian de Neuvillette, Cyrano writes poetry and love letters to Roxane on Christian’s behalf. After many years, the truth is revealed. Will love or beauty win the fair heroine’s heart?
