The Broadway revival of Cyrano de Bergerac, starring Tony winner Douglas Hodge in the title role, begins performances at the American Airlines Theatre.
Edmond Rostand's classic comedy follows Cyrano, a nobleman with a head for poetry and a nose for miles. All of Paris adores him except for his true love Roxanne, who can’t see past his all-too-prominent facial feature. Instead, she falls for a handsome young cadet named Christian. When Christian admits he’s tongue-tied with Roxanne, Cyrano gives him the romantic words guaranteed to win her heart.
