Since it was first performed in 1897, Cyrano De Bergerac has become one of the most popular plays of all time, and has been given multiple film adaptations, including Roxanne in 1987, starring Steve Martin, and the Disney Channel original movie, Let it Shine.
Audiences will quickly fall in love with Cyrano’s talent for sword fighting, unnoticed devotion to his beloved Roxanne, sharp nose, and even sharper wit.
BYU takes this adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s masterpiece, and demonstrates the timeless nature of this beautiful love story, by setting the play in the modern day, with modern costumes.
I look forward to sharing more about the making of this play, and the beautiful story that has captured the hearts for over a hundred years, through future posts on 4th Wall Dramaturgy. Check back each week to learn more about this special production!
