The National’s Musical Adaptation Of Cyrano de Bergerac Making Its Debut This Summer

The National have recently collaborated with theater writer/director Erica Schmidt for a new musical adaptation of the classic Edmond Rostand story Cyrano de Bergerac, which will take place at Connecticut’s Terris Theatre, running from August 3 – September 2, 2018, as part of theater company Goodspeed’s 2018 season.

The legendary romance about a proud and impassioned poet who ghost writes love letters is rekindled in a timeless and unconventional new musical. Cyrano agrees to woo his true love, Roxanne, on behalf of another in this classic tale of unrequited love. New music by members of the Grammy Award-winning indie alternative band The National drives this story of mistaken identity, selfless courage and buried desire.
