The Fountain Theatre is seeking “voice actors” for our upcoming co-production of Cyrano with Deaf West Theatre. Simon Levy directing.
Need strong actors [Men, 40’s-50] with vocal training, emotional depth, comic timing. Don’t need to know sign language. Rehearsals start Feb 28.
The world premiere of a new play written and directed by Stephen Sachs, Cyrano is a modern day reimagined deaf/hearing version of “Cyrano de Bergerac”, adapted from the Edmond Rostand classic. Acclaimed deaf actor Troy Kotsur will star as Cyrano. The project is supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
STORYLINE: The setting is present day. Cyrano is a brilliant deaf poet in a modern day city. He is hopelessly in love with a beautiful hearing woman, Roxy. But she doesn’t understand sign language and instead loves his hearing brother, Chris. Can Cyrano express his love for Roxy with his hands – the source of such deaf pride and shame? Or must he teach Chris to “speak his words” for him, to woo her? ASL becomes the language of love in this modern sign language spin on a classic love story.
