On Dec. 8, 2007, a single performance of Cyrano de Bergerac at the Richard Rogers Theater smashed the record for the highest gross of a play or musical in one night, totalling $153,880. Just a month later, on Jan. 6, Edmond Rostand’s 1897 timeless romance will close its curtains. The star-studded production, including Kevin Kline, as the big-schnozed Cyrano, and Jennifer Garner, as hard-to-get Roxane, began previews on Oct. 11 and opened on Nov. 1.
This broke the record set over the Thanksgiving holiday in 2006, by Disney’s Tarzan.
