it was amazing
bookshelves: play, romances

One of the best plays i've read in a long time. Also one of the most funniest and saddest play ever performed on stage. Rostand mirrors the genius of Shakespeare, he truly is the French Shakespeare in my mind. The performance of all the characters is just so good, while the irony of the story is which only the audiences know and not the main characters. It's a story in which you don't get the big Shakespearean dramatic finish instead what you get is the human touch of the end. The two male characters are very lovable, but the most lovable is Cyrano himself. Its an amazing play. I would seriously recommend it anyone who thinks that Shakespeare's plays have the human touch and contest that he is THE only play write worth watching. I also had the pleasure of watching this play performed on stage and it's so much more powerful when you watch it while reading it at the same time.
