CYRANO A-GO-GO

A SOLO SHOW BY BRAD McENTIRE

65 MINUTES / 1 M / FLEXIBLE STAGING










A-Go-G0 [or à gogo] - as much as you like; to your heart's content; galore: i.e. dancing à gogo.


CYRANO A-GO-GO is semi-autobiographical exploration of one restless theatre artist's fascination with the 1897 play Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand. A chance encounter with the script at a suburban public library at the age of fifteen leads to a cruel and wonderful calling. Mixing the personal, historical and literary into a journey through Rostand's play and a meditation on the differences between art and life, McEntire puts a funny, warm, insightful spin on the usual coming-of-age one-man show.
