Set in 17th-century France, this truly timeless rom-com tells the classic tale of its titular hero -- a skilled swordsman and clever wordsmith whose accomplishments are often overshadowed by his all-too-prominent proboscis. Wishing to woo the beautiful Roxane, Cyrano is concerned that she won't be able to get past his oversized schnoz. So he courts her by proxy, filtering his romantic poetry through the easier-on-the-eyes guise of the handsome Christian. But will Roxane fall for the dashing looks of Christian, or the exquisite sentiment of Cyrano? This TheatreWorks production at Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts is based on a 2011 translation and co-adaptation by Michael Hollinger (Opus).
