Seaside Music Theater was among the very few companies to ever revive "Cyrano", a musical version of Edmond Rostand's classic play, since it closed on Broadway in 1973. It's a lovely piece, with the libretto drawing from Anthony Burgess' translation of the play, and lyrics by Burgess himself. Michael J. Lewis wrote the score. The Seaside production was directed by Lester Malizia, with musical direction by Bob McDowell. Click the player below to hear a clip.
"It would be difficult to imagine a better-cast Cyrano than this production's Galen Fott. Fott handles the complex demands of the character with panache, managing to execute everything from the play's difficult and impressive swordplay to Cyrano's verbal barbs to his most passionate tragic moments with equal believability, and his smooth baritone fits wonderfully into his character's songs." — Daytona Beach News-Journal
