What Is the Story of Cyrano de Bergerac?
Set in seventeenth century Paris, Cyrano de Bergerac centers on the life and love of the titular wordsmith Cyrano de Bergerac, a nobleman with a disfigured nose and talent as a swordsman and poet. Though he’s a charismatic and well-respected jack-of-all-trades, Cyrano is rejected by his love Roxane, who favors the handsome cadet Christian instead. Ashamed of his looks but still determined to win Roxane’s heart, Cyrano lends his gift of poetry to the dim-witted Christian, so that at least one of them may enjoy the benefits of her love.

'Harry Potter' star Clemence Poesy is sublimely understated as Cyrano's great love, Roxane, and Soutra Gilmour's simple, flexible set smartly suggests a Renaissance-era painting brought to life.

Review by Tanner Stransky from Entertainment Weekly

Hodge exerts himself mightily to bring Cyrano to life, and he’s at his finest when lunging and parrying, both physically and verbally.

Review by Elisabeth Vincentelli from The New York Post

Hodge manages to breathe new fire into the brave, brilliant hero with the Achilles nose. Mind you, the leading man benefits from a superb supporting cast, directed with blazing vigor by Hodge's fellow Brit Jamie Lloyd, and from Ranjit Bolt's witty, earthy translation.

Review by Elysa Gardner from USA Today

From the moment he makes his truly startling entrance (and no, I won’t tell you how), Mr. Hodge is as light and oxygenating as air, even as the pure physical impact of his performance sets you reeling.
