Translates the classic French story of the master swordsman whose unpleasant appearance prevents him from courting the beautiful woman with whom he has fallen in love. This acclaimed adaptation for the stage by Anthony Burgess has garnered such reviews as: "Emotional depth Rostand himself would surely have envied...Burgess' extravagant verse keeps its contours, yet trips off the tongue almost as though it were contemporary speech."--London Times.
"Stamping, whomping, stealing, singing, tap-dancing, violating, Derby-topped hooligan Alex has a good time -- at the tragic expense of others. His journey from amoral punk to brainwashed proper citizen and back again forms the dynamic arc of Stanley Kubrick's future-shock vision of the Anthony Burgess novel"--Container.
"The classic tale of romance and tragedy tells the touching story of the big-nosed poet and philosopher Cyrano (Kline) who feeds the handsome but empty-headed Christian (Sunjata) the honeyed words to win the love of the beautiful Roxanne (Garner)."--Container.
