    Cyrano! His wit is as sharp as his sword, the enormity of his talent, intellect and passion matched only by the enormity of his, well, nose. The uniquely endowed protagonist is given a fresh face in this poignant and playful paean to panache, written in rhyming couplets. Romance rules the day in this story of his classic love triangle with the exquisite Roxane and the handsome and earnest, but verbally challenged, Christian. Learn More
