Cyrano noses his way into the Folger

In Edmund Rostand’s Cyrano, our hero secretly adores Roxanne but fears she could never share the sentiment because of his extraordinarily huge nose. So he uses his gift for wit and wordplay to help a tongue-tied friend Christian woo her instead. Adapted and directed by Aaron Posner and starring Eric Hissom in the title role. To June 5. Folger Elizabethan Theatre, 201 East Capitol St. SE. Tickets are $30 to $60. Call 202-544-7077 or visit folger.edu.
