Show: Cyrano de Bergerac

Written by: Edmond Rostand

Directed by: Mellisa Taylor   


Synopsis

Cyrano de Bergerac is a man of many talents: a gifted poet, swordsman, philosopher and scientist. His wit and deep sense of honor have earned him as many friends as enemies, and he is held in high regard by society. His only true burden in life is his abnormally large nose; a feature that he is certain means he can never earn the love of any woman – let alone the love of the beautiful Roxane! He resorts to wooing her, through letters, on behalf of Christian (a friend and fellow soldier), who is also in love with her but doesn’t have the words to express it. She falls for the beautiful words crafted by Cyrano’s hand and heart – but believes they were written by Christian.

ROLES:


Rick Baldwin Tanaka (early 20s)

A smart, optimist, fun-loving Staten Island stud who’s studying sports medicine at a local NY college. Rick’s the kind of guy who paints his face green, drinks a lot and hands with his buds on St. Patrick’s Day.


Joseph Flaherty (40s):

On the short side, stout, and balding. Born in Savannah, Georgia, he’s now and angry, liberal contracts lawyer who lies on the “way Upper West Side.” His wife recently walked out, leaving him with two young daughters.


Stephen Fitzgerald (late 30s):

Tall and handsome cop from the Bronx. He’s a moody, dark, taciturn smart-ass. Lives with his father, wo’s also a cop. Stephen never ever ever sees the glass as half full, although he would probably like to.


Kieran Riley (20s):

Nice-looking, middle-class guy from Queens who works at a roofing company. Kieran is exuberant, very nervous and very sincere. He’s also really Irish and someone you’d want to be your best friend.


The role of Father Kevin Shaunessy has already been cast.


Compensation: $35 per show (rehearsals not paid)
