Apollinaire Theatre Company presents Rostand’s ‘Cyrano de Bergerac’


Cyrano, the proboscisly challenged master swordsman and poet, is too ashamed of his large nose to woo his beloved Roxane. Resigned, Cyrano uses his mastery of words to win Roxane for another suitor, the dashing yet tongue-tied Christian. But when Roxane finds that she loves Christian for his mind, not for his beauty, which of her two suitors will finally possess her heart?

The play’s five acts– full of comedy, romance, adventure, heartbreak, courage, and love –will be performed in five locations throughout the park, with the audience moving with the action. Audiences are encouraged to bring blankets and beach chairs, and a picnic to enjoy along with the live pre-show music and the water views.

Danny Bryck plays the iconic French role of Cyrano in both English and Spanish. A 2009 graduate of Boston University’s BFA Acting program, Danny has already made a splash in theatres around town in shows as diverse as Whistler in the Dark’s Family Stories, American Repertory Theatre’s The Donkey Show, Huntington Theatre Company’s The Corn is Green, and New Repertory Theatre’s tour of Animal Farm. His performance as Hedwig in Hedwig and the Angry Inch earned him an IRNE nomination for Best Actor. He can also be seen performing with ImprovBoston, in independent films, and recently in a small recurring role on As The World Turns.

These Free performances of Cyrano de Bergerac are July 14-31, Wed.-Sun. at 7:30.

English performances are Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
Spanish performances are Fridays and Sundays.

The production is staged environmentally in multiple locations in Mary O’Malley Park, Commandant’s Way, on the Chelsea Waterfront (Admiral’s Hill). Information/Directions: www.apollinairetheatre.com or (617) 887-2336.
