Edmond Rostand’s tale of chivalry and inner beauty has a firm place in the Western Canon by now, but the story is always ripe for retelling. As a master swordsman and brilliant courtier, Cyrano de Bergerac has few equals. Unfortunately for poor Cyrano, neither does his sizable sniffer.
Smitten with the fair Roxanne, he hides his feelings. But when Cyrano goes so far as to surreptitiously aid a more handsome dullard in his own pursuit of the lady, things go humorously awry.
