About this title


Frank Langella's gritty, minimalist adaptation of Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac, based on Brian Hooker's translation.


CYRANO need not have diminished emotional impact when divorced from the grand acting style for which the play was conceived. Its lyrical scenes still etch a portrait of Cyrano as a man of uncompromising bravery except in matters of the heart. They come off beautifully in the intimate off-Broadway-size Roundabout Theater. To the open minded, Langella's work will hardly seem felonious and it may be a breakthrough! --David Patrick Stearns, U S A Today

Frank Langella has abridged the text and given the play a bare-bones production shorn of extravagance. CYRANO is compelling enough in its characterizations, dialogue and situations to withstand minimalism. --Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter

Frank Langella's adaptation is relatively short, fast and intimate. The speed of the shortened version allows the ideas behind the play to emerge with great force and clarity. The result is a terrifically enjoyable and surprising thought-provoking piece of theater. --Fintan O'Toole, Daily News (New York)
