In Edmund Rostand's classic, Cyrano, the titular character 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. In previews starting Tuesday, April 26, at 7:30 p.m. To June 5. Folger Elizabethan Theatre, 201 East Capitol St. SE. Tickets are $30 to $60. Call 202-544-7077 or visit folger.edu.
