Theatre Above the Law’s world premiere of Michael P. Dalberg’s adaptation of the French classic takes an interesting twist that resonates in today’s #MeToo climate. Cyrano is a female soldier, played with panache by an achingly vulnerable Isabella Snow, and her trademark large nose is purely a product of body dysmorphia. She’s yearning to win the heart of Roxanne (a wide-eyed Nicola Rinow). This Cyrano is a completely modern romantic comedy tinged with unsettling, gender-based power dynamics. What remains the same is Cyrano’s inability to get past her own insecurities to see true love right in front of her face. As best friend Donna, Brittany Vogel is a constant source of witty barbs and offers much-needed raised eyebrows to balance Cyrano’s stormy bravado and bluster. —Marissa Oberlander
