From the Playbill
I have worn glasses from the time I was in fourth grade and in those days - the early 1940's - it was considered a weakness by my peers and made me easy prey for bullies. I felt there was something wrong with me and like Cyrano I would never be attractive to a beautiful 'Roxanne.' So as Cyrano does, I put on a mask of bravado and fought back like our hero with ‘wit and panache.' I suffered many pairs of broken glasses but my 'white plume' was never trampled although I had many bruises and my parents got tired of buying new glasses.

What the Critics Said
" the effect is pure magic....the production takes on a rapturous quality that is irresistible. Santo has the voice, physical agility, and panache required to create a brilliant Cyrano."
- Charles Brousse, Marin I.J.
"How sweet it is to find romance under a full moon on a summer evening in Marin...A rowdy group of cadets, a very bad actor, a drunken poet, a baker who writes verse about his buns, a group of nuns, and two foppish noblemen are all played boldly by a well-chosen cast that never falters."
- Lee Brady, Pacific Sun
