The well-enunciated tones of The St. Charles Players provide clarity and excitement in stimulating radio theater style as they portray the story of Cyrano in rhyme and poetry. The production is full of life and exuberance--vendors hawking their wares as Cyrano comes on stage, voices of high-spirited children encouraging him while hecklers in the crowd boo and jeer. Male and female portrayals are easy to distinguish as Cyrano seeks the favor of his adored Roxanne. Minuet-style music provides breaks between scenes. This refreshing adaptation provides an excellent alternative to an age-old classic. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 01]
