The play stars the wonderful Kevin Kline and the lovely Jennifer Garner of "Alias" fame. No sooner was I ready to write a review of the show than the stagehands went out on strike and shut down the play.
Well now the strike is over, here are my thoughts.
"Cyrano de Bergerac" was written by Edmond Rostand and is about a 17th century Frenchman with a hankering for his beautiful and cultured cousin Roxane. A consummate charmer, Cyrano has a fine way with a sword and an even finer way with words from the heart.
He also happens to have a humongous nose. We're talking Pinocchio on a bad day. And because of his prominent protrusion, Cyrano is a bit of an insecure mess. He likes to pick fights, seems to have a bit of a death wish, but is quite courageous as well. Except of course when it comes to matters of the heart.
