The New York Times has deemed this extraordinary collection to be "the crown jewels of public and network television."
Canadian-born, Yale-trained Peter Donat made his mark on the theatrical world with his rich portrayals of such larger-than-life characters as Cyrano de Bergerac. In Edmond Rostand's swashbuckling yet bittersweet comedy, the characters experience emotions on a heroic scale. The play's hero, Cyrano, is a magnificient wit whose pride masks a deep insecurity about his appearance-specifically, his abnormally large nose. His compelling love for the beautiful heroine, Roxanne, is the motivating force behind all the action in the play. With words from his own poet's heart, Cyrano wins Roxanne for another man, the tongue-tied but handsome Christian.
