· October 28, 30 & 31, 2017: SHE LOVES ME
Soldier and poet Cyrano de Bergerac (Kevin Kline) is in love with Roxane (Jennifer Garner), but he’s too ashamed to admit it because of his big nose. When a cadet, Christian (Daniel Sunjata), falls for Roxane, he asks for Cyrano’s help in sharing his feelings. Cyrano writes love letters signed with Christian’s name, and Roxane doesn’t realize that it is Cyrano’s words she falls for. She marries Christian, and Cyrano continues to keep the other man’s secret, even after tragedy strikes.
Based on Edmond Rostand’s 1897 romantic classic, this is the story of a 17th-century French cavalier poet with a soul as big as his oversized nose. It pushes all the emotional buttons just as effectively today as it did when it was written over 100 years ago. Based on a true story, this is a stylish production with sumptuous costumes and sets. Directed by David Leveaux.
“The New Yorker” cheered “Kevin Kline is sensational” and “The New York Times” said “The show goes down so easily, you’re misty-eyed before you know it.” (Runtime 2 hrs, 21 min).
