About The Poster: This poster was created to advertize the play Cyrano de Bergerac, inspired by Edmond Rostand's novel of the same name. In its 1995 run in Quebec, the title role was played by Guy Nadon, a Montreal-native who also happens to voice Morgan Freeman and Dustin Hoffman's roles in the Quebecer dubs of their movies!
Rostand's novel is based on a Parisian man born in 1619 who was a famous novelist, playwright, libertarian, and duelist. Although Rostand took creative liberties with the man's life story (meaning it isn't entirely factual!), the main plot is as follows: Cyrano "has an extremely large nose, which is the reason for his own self-doubt. This doubt prevents him from expressing his love for his distant cousin, the beautiful and intellectual heiress Roxane, as he believes that his ugliness denies him the "dream of being loved by even an ugly woman."

The poster is unlined and in great condition, except for some minor creases on top right corner.
