Cyrano de Bergerac Book Description :

A genius with language, but convinced of his own ugliness, Cyrano secretly loves the radiant Roxane. While Roxane is in love with the beautiful but inarticulate Christian. Cyrano's generous offer to act as go-between sets in motion a poignant and often hilarious love-triangle, in which each character is torn between the lure of physical attraction and the seductive power of words. Martin Crimp's adaptation of Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac premiered at the Playhouse Theatre, London, in November 2019.

Cyrano De Bergerac Book Description :

The classic tragicomic play about a hero whose insecurity about his oversized nose keeps him from the woman he loves. From the time it was written at the end of the nineteenth century by French playwright Edmond Rostand, Cyrano de Bergerac has remained one of the most enduring works of our era—through countless stage and film adaptations as well as homages in popular culture. Our hero is a nobleman, a brave duelist, a talented poet—but one thing holds him back: his nose. Convinced the beautiful Roxane could never love him, Cyrano agrees to help a friend woo her instead. The story that follows has kept readers and audiences laughing and crying for over a century. This is the original play, introducing the incomparable character whom actors yearn to play, and generations of readers have fallen in love with.

Cyrano de Bergerac The Original Classic Edition Book Description :

I've been around theater for quite a while, and I was lucky enough to be in this play twice, once as Cyrano. I've done Shakespeare, O'Neill, Chekhov...and I've never been in a play that comes close to this in terms of dramatic force. Hercule Savinien Cyrano de Bergerac, a cadet (nobleman serving as a soldier) in the French Army, is a brash, strong-willed man of many talents. In addition to being a remarkable duelist, he is a gifted, joyful poet and is also shown to be a musician. However, he has an extremely large nose, which is the reason for his own self-doubt. This doubt prevents him from expressing his love for his distant cousin, the beautiful and intellectual heiress Roxane, as he believes that his ugliness denies him the 'dream of being loved by even an ugly woman.' The fashion in French theater at the time it was written was simple domestic drama: husbands and wives and their various conflicts. This play exploded on the scene and there was extremely strong public reaction. (I think there may even have been riots.) For modern American audiences, I must confess, it's a pretty long haul. Even with some judicious cutting, it's tough to get the thing down close to three hours. But what a ride! Poetry, fight scenes, comedy, tears...it's just incredible. In all the plays I've done, I've never done one that comes so close to, literally, the meaning of life. Why are we here? What makes human beings act the way they do? Why do people try things that are clearly impossible? It's all in there. I knew someone in college who gave this paperback edition to everyone he knew as a gift, because it spoke so strongly to him. Looking back on it now, I'm amazed that I was able to memorize all the text, because I'm convinced that this is the longest role in Western theater...longer than Hamlet, I think. This translation has been called the greatest translation of poetry ever, and while I'm not a poetry student, I can agree. Squishing the 6-foot French lines into 5-foot English lin
