Cyrano de Bergerac
By Edmond Rostand
Adapted and Directed By Gabriel Barre
Gabriel’s production of Cyrano will feature an intimate ensemble of
actor/musicians, and will highlight the play’s celebration of language
and its exploration of Cyrano’s humility and self-doubt. Gabriel is an
internationally acclaimed director (Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle
nominations for Andrew Lippa’s The Wild Party) and performer (Tony
Nomination for Starmites), who will be making his Broadway directing
debut this year with the new musical, Amazing Grace.

By Ginger Lazarus
Directed By Eric Parness
In Burning, Cyrano has become Cy, a woman kicked out of the Army for
being gay, who, like Cyrano, suffers from insecurity that prevents her
from pursuing love. The play is not only a fresh take on the Cyrano
story, it tackles critical contemporary issues of gender inequality,
discrimination based on sexual orientation, and military abuse.
Ginger’s work has been honored with the John Gassner Memorial
Playwriting Award and an IRNE nomination for Best New Play.
