Seven Helen Hayes Award Nominations. Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding Director
By Edmond Roastand. Translated by Michael Hollinger. Adapted by Michael Hillinger & Aaron Posner.
This has been one of my favorite plays from the first time I saw it when I was very young. There is something deeply inspiring in Cyrano’s story that makes me want to live my life more fully— and that is a message I think well worth sharing. Michael Hollinger and I shared a love of the this script and a desire to make it fresher and more accessible to folks who could not afford the small army of actors necessary to do it. Our nine-person version, conceived by us both, but largely written by Michael, is a small gem that keeps the beating heart of the story alive.
“...delivers on beautiful language and fancy swashbuckling, in a classic story crisply told.”
