Nasal passages: Although Edmond Rostand’s theatrical classic Cyrano de Bergerac needs no other proof of success beyond the introduction of the word “panache” into the vernacular, the folks over at Play On! have done him another favor. In local playwright Peter Coy’s take, Mostly Cyrano, a troupe of actors prepares to tackle the gargantuan piece only to have its themes resurface as probing questions about their own lives. Dueling over the existence of romanticism, honor, and selflessness modernity.

Thursday-Sunday 3/21-24 $5-17, 8pm. (2pm matinee on Sundays). Play On! Theatre, 983 Second St. S.E. 872-0184.
