Got panache? Cyrano, the lead in Edmond Rostand’s 1897 drama, certainly does. Responsible for introducing the French word “panache” into the English language, Rostand’s Cyrano is a comedic tragedy based on the life of the French novelist and playwright Cyrano de Bergerac. Over a century old, the classic play about romance, love triangles and an enduring hero with an intellect as large as his nose, is both timeless and aged. See award-winning playwright Barry Kornhauser’s clever new take on a play full of wit, intrigue, and, of course, panache, during the Village Players’ two-weekend run.
