Shakespeare Dallas kicked off its summer season with a play not by the Elizabethan playwright, but rather Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac. As Kris Noteboom writes on TheaterJones, Cyrano is also the favorite play of Audacity Theatre Labs’s Brad McEntire, and in conjunction with the Shakespeare Dallas run, McEnire is presenting his Cyrano A-Go-Go at the Green Zone. From the TJ piece:
Throughout the hour-and-15-minute piece, McEntire delivers more of the history from his favorite play whilst tying it in with events from his own life in an engaging, educational experience sure to enrich the impact of Cyrano.
During the oration, McEntire recounts the nerve-wracked opening night and the subsequent two hour standing ovation, the conundrum of being the brother-like guy friend, and the impact of the play on his pursuit of theater.
The whole of the piece is well-organized, jumping from past to present, from fiction to fact, between his life and Cyrano’s with great aplomb. There’s never a dull moment, and the experience will not only augment your appreciation for Rostand’s masterpiece, but the theater and arts in general, with an interesting bit of history thrown in.
