Coming Soon: CYRANO
PERFORMANCES BEGIN APRIL 7
By Edmond Rostand
Adapted and Directed by Josh Costello
Aurora Artistic Director Josh Costello adapts the classic tale for the intimacy of Aurora’s
stage. Cyrano, the famed poet-soldier, loves Roxane, but has one fear: to be mocked by a
lady for his enormous nose. Young Christian has a pretty face but lacks the wit to woo.
Cyrano’s words and Christian’s looks combine to form a hero of romance – but does
Roxane fall in love with Christian’s face or with Cyrano’s soul? This story of unrequited
love, sacrifice, friendship, and poetry all at a time of war is brought into new focus in this
world premiere five-actor adaptation.
"A tale of glorious theatricality, glittering poetry and heroic self-sacrifice...Cyrano de Bergerac [is] a hero for all time." – The Guardian
