Our 2015-2016 Season:
February 2016 at the Theatre at St. Clements
Cyrano de Bergerac
By Edmond Rostand
Adapted by Gabriel Barre, Rick Sordelet, and Alexander Sovronsky
Directed By Gabriel Barre
This 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 Barre 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 made his Broadway directing debut this season 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.
