Join Lisa VanDamme as she guides you through The Romantics by Edmond Rostand. Recommended Book Url: https://readwithme.app.link/IhjAgeFkSjb Description This three-act comedy by Edmond Rostand, best known for his enduringly beloved play Cyrano de Bergerac, is the story of two star-crossed lovers from feuding families forced to whisper their sweet nothings across a wall. Or is it… Even before the curtain closes on Act I, Rostand has turned this seemingly cliché scenario on its head, with uproarious results. Rostand has given us laugh-out-loud theater with an earnest theme, as he takes on the question: What does it really mean to be a romantic? Why I Love it I still recall opening this play as I lounged in a summer cottage I had rented in the Cotswolds. I knew nothing at all about the plot. But I felt sure, since it was written by Rostand, purveyor of idealism and poetry, that it would be…well…romantic. It wasn’t long before I was laughing out loud, alone in my cozy little room. But when I closed the cover, and reflected on all that had happened, I could see that while I was laughing I was also being made to contemplate the vital question of what it means to be a romantic.
