PASADENA PLAYHOUSE TO STAGE BIG, BOLD ADAPTATION OF ‘CYRANO DE BERGERAC’: Pasadena Playhouse, California’s official State Theater, presents a daring reimagining of Edmond Rostand’s “Cyrano de Bergerac” from Sept. 4 to Sept. 29. This adaptation, freely crafted by acclaimed British author Martin Crimp, offers a fresh perspective on the timeless love story. Opening night is scheduled for Sept. 8 at the Tony Award-winning venue. The production aims to capture timeless passion through spoken word, contemporary poetry, and raw physicality, blending modern poetry with sizzling rhythm to create a captivating experience. Crimp’s adaptation, described as “breathtakingly exciting” by the Evening Standard, employs spoken word, contemporary poetry, and raw physicality to explore themes of passion and unrequited love. The play centers on the linguistically brilliant Cyrano, who secretly pines for the radiant Roxane. For more information, visit https://www.pasadenaplayhouse.org/event/cyrano-de-bergerac/.
