Synopsis: 

A enduring masterwork with some of the wittiest lines ever written for the stage, Cyrano de Bergerac is a clever and touching story about the power of love, the art of wordplay and the joy of finding what you've always wanted right under your nose. Cyrano's a nobleman with a head for poetry and a nose for miles. All of Paris adores him except for his true love Roxanne, who can't see past his all-too-prominent facial feature. Instead, she falls for a handsome young cadet named Christian. But when Christian admits he's tongue-tied with Roxanne, Cyrano gives him the romantic words guaranteed to win her heart. With Christian's looks and Cyrano's language, it's a foolproof plan! Or is it?

  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Cyrano de Bergerac

    BEN BRANTLEY

    October 12, 2012: Five or 10 minutes into the new revival of “Cyrano de Bergerac,” at the American Airlines Theater, something like a hurricane whooshes through the house. It’s the kind of wind that makes jaded theatergoers widen their eyes and hold tight to their seats as it sweeps away cobwebs, preconceptions and dank mustiness.

  • AM NEW YORK REVIEW OF Cyrano de Bergerac

    October 11, 2012: Edmond Rostand's 1897 sentimental fairy tale romance "Cyrano de Bergerac" is not so much a great play as it is a durable star vehicle for a skilled actor who can handle rhymed verse, swordplay and a giant prosthetic nose.

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS REVIEW OF Cyrano de Bergerac

    October 11, 2012: It's almost common now for actors in New York to jump into the audience and roam about the aisles, as if the stage can't contain them. Douglas Hodge has them all beat: The theater itself can't contain him.

  • HOLLYWOOD REPORTER REVIEW OF Cyrano de Bergerac

    October 11, 2012: Douglas Hodge pulls out all the stops in the title role, but this frenetic production of Edmond Rostand's celebrated verse play hits the mark only intermittently.

  • NEWSDAY REVIEW OF Cyrano de Bergerac

    October 11, 2012: Despite the famous fellow in the title, "Cyrano de Bergerac" is really a three-sided romantic tragedy. Of course, Edmond Rostand's big, old-fashioned 19th century heartbreaker is most beloved for its depiction of a beautiful soul trapped behind Cyrano's giant nose. For the full effect, however, this needs to be a genuine trio of love, with a heroine, Roxane, who deserves such adoration, and an inarticulate young rival, Christian, whose great looks can almost charm a girl into not missing the pretty talk.
