Description

They say the pen is mightier than the sword, but lately I’ve had my doubts. Seriously, the sabre-rattlers seem to be rallying a lot these days, don’t they?

How nice, then, to escape for several hours to 1640s Paris, where the town’s leading writer is also its resident badass, vanquishing foes, wooing maidens and freestyle rhyming like he was some kind of 17th century French Jay-Z.

My time travel agent: Perseverance Theatre, whose penultimate production of the 2017-18 season, “Cyrano de Bergerac,” presents a crowd-pleasing tale of love, honor and panache, by way of a warrior-poet with a huge nose and substantial psychological complex about it.
