The Falcon's Eye celebrates the close of its tenth season with Edmond Rostand's Cyrano, adapted by Michael Hollinger and Aaron Posner. The most legendary nose in literature gets a makeover with this lively American adaptation of the 1897 French classic. Will Roxane fall for Christian's dashing looks or Cyrano's daring poetry? Find out in this timeless tale-full of wordplay and swordplay - that's been an inspiration to writers and lovers for centuries.
