At Riverside Theatre, as part of their Summer on Gilbert Street, Cyrano debuts. An adaptation of Rostand’s 1897 French classic, Cyrano de Bergerac, Jo Roets’ version uses a cast of five actors to transform this classic into a lively romance of wit, panache, sacrifice—and an enormous schnoz. It’s a captivating play for the whole family. More information here.
