This entertaining audio production proves that the story of Cyrano de Bergerac stands the test of time. McCaughrean’s adaptation maintains the lyrical integrity of Edmond Rostand’s original play while making it accessible to today’s audience. Trevor Hill is perfect as Cyrano, the man with the unfortunate nose who declares his love for Roxanne through letters while hiding behind the handsome face of his rival, Christian. Hill’s portrayal will make listeners cheer for Cyrano, wish that Roxanne would realize his love for her, and despair at his tragic demise. Cynthia Bishop’s polished narration, an outstanding cast with American-accented voices, and bits of fitting music complete the applause-worthy audio experience. M.M.G.
