Marin Shakespeare Company - Hey nonny nonny and wild Shakespeare!--Pacific Sun

Cyrano de Bergerac
story by Edmond Rostand

Directed by James Dunn

Michael Santo as Cyrano  Marcia Pizzo as Roxane - 2000

Producer’s Perspective:

This was one of those shows that really clicked. Michael Santo – the first actor we ever cast without an audition – was exceptional in the title role. Marcia Pizzo was both stunningly romantic as the young Roxanne, and gorgeously nuanced as the aging and aged woman. Jason Heil was a perfect Christian, with his boyish charm and handsome good looks. Ken Rowland added just the right touch of maliciousness as the bad guy, de Guiche. The chemistry was great. Some of the supporting cast were excellent – Robert Currier played (what else?) the theatre manager; Jonathan Gonzalez was a wonderful poetic baker; Anne Ripley was just right.
