Why See Cyrano?
Brand new show
Game of Thrones scene stealer and Emmy winner Peter Dinklage returns to the stage to star as the titular Cyrano De Bergerac in this brand new musical adaptation of Edmond Rostand's colorful play detailing the life of the famed libertine, poet, and soldier from Goodspeed Musicals.
Featuring all new music and lyrics from Grammy-winning alt-rockers The National and Carin Besser and adapted and directed by Erica Schmidt, Dinklage will be joined by Hayley Bennett, who steps into the role of Roxanne, the beautiful object of Cyrano's secret affections. Whilst this is far from the first adaptation of the play that was said to keep the audience clapping on their feet for a full hour after its first appearance, it certainly looks like it will be a winner this summer!
Turn to facts my fantasies - The story of Cyrano
The ultimate ode to unrequited love, Cyrano De Begerac is a famed and talented solider in the French Army who moonlights as a passionate poet. In love with the intellectual beauty Roxanne, he agrees to write to her as another - Christian her beloved. As time goes on the task proves too much for the entranced Cyrano, taxing him to find his courage and confess to being the author of the letters that have bewitched her. Romantic, expressive and a pean to bravery and self-confidence, don't miss the chance to let classic woo you all over again.
