by Edmond Rostand
translated by Michael Hollinger and 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.
“…a sterling, illuminating new translation by Michael Hollinger…His mostly rhymeless version bubbles with dialogue that honors the play’s period (17th century) and dishes as easily as, say, the ladies on The View…a joy to watch—funny, touching, pathetic, kinetic. A story well told.” —Philadelphia Inquirer. “
