“Cyrano” to run at the Folger through June 12

The show will go on for Cyrano.

Folger Theatre has decided to extend the run of their play “Cyrano,” until June 12. The classic play, set in 17th century Paris, tells the tale of the large-nosed Cyrano de Bergerac who uses his charm and wordplay to assist the dashing Christian in winning the love of Roxanne.
