The legendary romance about a proud and impassioned poet who ghostwrites love letters is rekindled in a timeless and unconventional new musical. Cyrano agrees to woo his true love, Roxanne, on behalf of another in this classic tale of unrequited love. New music by members of the Grammy Award-winning indie alternative band The National drives this story of mistaken identity, selfless courage and buried desire.

Adapted by Erica Schmidt from Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand | Music by Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National
Lyrics by Matt Berninger of The National and Carin Besser
Scenic Design by Christine Jones and Amy Rubin
Costume Design by Andrea Lauer | Lighting Design by Jeff Croiter
Sound Design by Jay Hilton | Music Supervisor Olivier Manchon
Choreographed by Jeff & Rick Kuperman
Directed by Erica Schmidt
