Set to kundiman and pop rock-inspired music, it tells the story of young ROTC cadet Cyrano, who is in love with his childhood friend Roxane. Cyrano ends up writing her love letters, sending there under the name of handsome suitor new suitor Christian. As they navigate the intricacies of love, they soon also find themselves fighting for their lives as the threat of war becomes more real.
The musical will be returning for a limited 16-show run at the Hyundai Hall, Arete in Ateneo De Manila University. It will show from November 9 to November 25, two years after its first run in 2016.
