Mile Square Theatre presents: Cyrano
Hoboken’s premiere theatre group started 10 years ago, and their very first production was Cyrano. And to commemorate their Decennial anniversary, they bringing it back again!
Starting this Saturday, October 11th – through October 26th at the Edge Lofts uptown.
Cyrano opens October 11th at Edge Lofts in Hoboken
Mile Square Theatre presents its 2014 Young Audiences production: Cyrano, Jo Roets’ fun and theatrical adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac, at the Edge Lofts in Hoboken
What if you could single-handedly fight off 100 men? Or if your wit was as sharp as the sword you carry? And you wrote poetry that could make any person weep? Wouldn’t these attributes win you the affection of the woman you love? Not if you are Cyrano, whose oversized nose shames him into silence, believing no one could love him.
Mile Square Theatre presents Cyrano, Jo Roet’s delightful adaptation of the classic tale about a poet-warrior with a very large nose and even larger heart. This swashbuckling production features 15 characters played by three versatile actors who bring the story to life with wild theatricality.
Lenard Petit (star of MST’s A Christmas Carol and Artistic Director of the Michael Chekov Studios) returns to MST’s stage as Cyrano, reprising his performance that opened MST’s doors 12 years ago. He is joined by emerging artists Meeya Davis and Will Hardyman.
While Mile Square Theatre (MST), Hudson County`s premiere professional theatre company, builds its new theatre space in The Artisan at 1408 Clinton Street, the company will perform across the street in the intimate Edge Lofts at 1405 Clinton, thanks to the generosity of Bijou Properties.
