Conceived and Directed by Jim Lasko and Charles Newell
From a new rhymed verse translation by Mickle Maher
Based on the play Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand
Co-produced by Court Theatre and Redmoon Theater
Presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art, May 20 - June 27, 2004
Through masks and puppets, broad physical performance, and the startling beauty of the play's lyrical language, Redmoon Theater and Court Theatre tell the romantic, heart-warming, and often funny story of the swordsman and poet, Cyrano de Bergerac. Cursed with a blossoming beak of a nose, Cyrano agrees to help his rival win the heart of the beautiful Roxane, whom Cyrano de Bergerac himself loves in silence. In the hands of the widely acclaimed collaborators, CYRANO comes to life in a wholly original way.
A world-premiere adaptation produced in association with Chicago's Redmoon Theater.
