From the press release: Set in 17th century France, CYRANO tells the story of a great swordsman with a beautiful soul who is handicapped by a huge nose that makes him feel incapable of being loved by the beautiful Roxane. When he learns that Roxane and a handsome young soldier named Christian are infatuated with each other, he concocts a plan to pen beautiful love letters to her on Christian’s behalf, leading to a tragic love triangle.
CYRANO runs March 3rd – April 15th at Theater Wit, 1229 W. Belmont Ave, Chicago. For more information visit bohotheatre.com.
