Mainstage Theater

Edmund Rostand’s timeless tale of chivalry, passion, bravery, and honor is brought to life in this exhilarating and boldly theatrical new American adaptation of the 19th century French masterpiece!

Set during the reign of Louis XIII, Cyrano is the story of a universal hero for the ages; a gallant soldier, dazzling wit, and sensual poet, who nonetheless shies away from pursuing the woman he adores. Roxanne is a beautiful and alluring young lady, and Cyrano is a gallant and virtuous gentleman; one would think they would make a handsome couple. Yet, tragically, a formidable obstacle forever stands between the would-be lovers; Cyrano’s enormous nose!

An inspiration to lovers everywhere, word-play, swordplay, jealousy, and loyalty clash in a brilliant shower of sparks in this unabashedly sentimental and beautifully lyrical ballad to the enduring spirit of romance!
