Description

"Cyrano is a brash, strong-willed man of many talents whose whimsical aptitude for the spoken word is overshadowed by an attribute that is iconic, outrageous and gigantic-his nose. How can the curiously-snouted Cyrano ever hope to win the affections of the beautiful Roxane? An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast recording, starring Caroline Aaron, Hugo Armstrong, Kalen Harriman, Gregory Itzin, Hamish Linklater, Anna Mathias, Morgan Ritchie, Jason Ritter, Andre Sogliuzzo, Devon Sorvari, and Matthew Wolf Adapted for Radio and Directed by Barry Creyton and recorded before a live audience.

Professional reviews

"L.A Theatre Works gives a briskly energetic performance of Rostand's bittersweet romance about the heroic but unlovely poet and swordsman Cyrano and his hopeless love for the beautiful Roxane. The cast handles Burgess's rhyming version adroitly, without making listeners uncomfortably aware of the verse structure--though this adaptation of Burgess's adaptation seems curtailed and a bit abrupt. There's some weakness in the minor roles, and Linklater's Cyrano lacks the refinement one expects from the poet. (It's hard to imagine Cyrano saying "gonna," as Linklater does.) But the main players convey the drama's emotions admirably, hold listeners' attention, and keep the piece lively. The program includes an informative conversation with a biographer of Rostand.
