Marlee Matlin Lights Up Opening Night of “Cyrano”

The excitement of Opening Night on Saturday of our world premiere of Cyrano  was given an added thrill by the attendance of Film/TV actress Marlee Matlin. Marlee is a longtime supporter of both Deaf West and the Fountain Theatre.  She is a member of the Advisory Board at Deaf West, and she starred in the CBS TV-movie version of the Fountain Theatre play, Sweet Nothing in my Ear, written by Cyrano playwright Stephen Sachs.

The Cyrano cast was delighted to have Marlee with them on Opening Night. “She’s a sweetheart,” says cast member Eddie Buck. “I got compliments  from her. She absolutely looks gorgeous.”

Actor Daniel Durant describes the encounter with Marlee as “a very big moment to meet and talk with such a great role model.”
