Just in time for Valentine's Day, Cyrano de Bergerac is sure to warm your heart in the dark of winter. Tragic romantic hero and Renaissance man, Cyrano is skilled with both sword and pen, but his deformity dooms him to solitude. Presented in a new English translation which renders the original rhymed verse with "panache"—a word this very play introduced into our vocabulary.
