About the Show

Cyrano de Bergerac is the full package: he’s a poet, playwright and consummate swordsman. The only thing standing in the way of declaring his love for Roxane is his grotesquely large nose. When Roxane confides that she’s fallen for a handsome young cadet named Christian, Cyrano takes him under his wing, adds brains to his beauty, and through Christian expresses his own feelings to Roxane without her suspecting a thing. With wit, wordplay and rousing passion, Cyrano de Bergerac is a heroic comedy for the ages.

Themes

  • In this play, we see characters behaving dishonestly because of their own insecurities. Do you see examples of this in today’s world? If so, how and why?
  • Cyrano can be a metaphor for showing one’s most favorable qualities, while keeping the less favorable qualities hidden away. Why do you think someone would find that positive or negative? Are there ways in which we do this in our own lives?
