Kay Nolte Smith’s ‘Chantecler’ (by Rostand) in NYC

Forwarded by frequent Atlasphere columnist Michelle Fram Cohen. Note that it only runs through May 22nd!

Chantecler, by Edmond Rostand, author of Cyrano de Bergerac is an animal allegory about a rooster who believes that his song makes the sun rise. Adhesive Theater Project’s production will investigate the themes of inspiration, finding our place in society, and overcoming our greatest doubts and fears.

Not seen in New York since it’s original Broadway production in 1911, this fresh translation by Kay Nolte Smith brings back the poetry and vitality of the original French. So celebrate this year of the rooster with this king of the barnyard – Chantecler.
