Sound & Fury's 'Cyranose!'
Presented by Sound & Fury


Reviewed: 2007-07-21 11:59:36
Rated: 8 out of 10 [4 Stars]
By: John Chase (

Sound & Fury returns with all-new rhetoric -- though this year the Bard escapes their side-splitting cut-ups as they set their sights on the French play "Cyrano de Bergerac".

We follow our hero, "Cyranose de Bivouac" (Richard Maritzer), who encounters a host of other zany characters created by Shelby Bond, as he laments unrequited love for his cousin Roxanne (played by Shannon Dery with full facial hair). As we've come to expect from these men, their cut-up of a classic gradually gets more insane -- and insanely funny -- as the plot progresses, with comedy in song, dance, verbal and physical styles.

There were a few opening-day technical glitches during the performance, but these gentlemen did just what professionals should do -- worked with them -- and the show became even funnier as a result.

In short, "Cyranose" is yet another raucous comedy in the Sound & Fury repertoire that's worth lining up for -- which you should plan on, because they WILL keep selling out. Four stars out of five!
