Calvin Berger puts a contemporary spin on the classic tale of Cyrano de Bergerac. The musical follows the story of Calvin, an intelligent high school student with a prominent feature that sets him apart – his large nose. Calvin, a talented wordsmith, helps the less articulate but attractive Matt woo the girl of their dreams, Rosanna. As Calvin ghostwrites love notes for Matt, he grapples with his own feelings for Rosanna. Calvin Berger navigates the complexities of love, identity, and societal expectations in the high school setting.
