“CYRANO DE BERGERAC” – THE BEAUTIFUL TALE OF UNREQUITED LOVE

By | January 6, 2019

Cyrano will be warming hearts this winter.

Rostand’s masterpiece tells the true but fictionalized story of the gifted poet, musician, soldier, and duelist who is kept from expressing his love for the beautiful Roxanne by the shame he feels about his rather large nose! Alternately funny, dramatic, witty, touching, and tragic, Ms. Frankel’s adaptation makes this wonderful story accessible to everyone. This play will be an excellent date night!

Opening January 26, the production runs through March 2 on Fridays, Saturdays, and select Thursdays at 8:00 pm. There are matinees select dates at 2:30 pm. Doors open for dining two hours prior to curtain. Reservations are required to dine.

Reserved tickets are $40. Senior, Military, and Student tickets are available. Add dining for $17 up to 48 hours prior to a performance. Rush tickets are sold one hour prior to performances, depending on seat availability; they range from $10-$20 and are perfect for audience members who are new to theatre or cannot schedule tickets in advance.
