Edmond Rostand’s classic tale of love, Cyrano de Bergerac, receives a fresh take from the House Theatre of Chicago to open its 10th Anniversary season. The company’s own Matt Hawkins adapts, directs and choreographs the fight scenes for this high-energy production, in which Cyrano pursues the fair Roxanne through new original music, poetry and spectacular swordplay.
