Cicero question....

The other day someone mentioned something to me about me helping a friend plan a romantic evening for him and his GF.... ther person said "oh, like Cicero and ?????? " (from Shakespeare I believe)

And I'm drawing a blank on the person's name (?????)

Can anyone help?

Cicero wasnt at all romantic. I think your friend probably meant Cyreno de Bergeac by Rostand.

i'm pretty sure they meant Cyrano, as in Cyrano de Bergerac, as Cicero was a philosopher

Roxanne - that was her name - Cyrano and Roxanne.

Cicero was a character in Julius Caeser. I once saw an art house play of this umm play. Completely in Italian. The 'Friends, Romans, Countrymen" speech was given by an old naked man who shoved a camera up his nose so his trachiotomy (sp?) could be projected on the big screen. Cicero was a large naked male with his back to the audience. His back had been painted to look like a double bass and he just sat on his stool swaying in time with the Nazi interogation lamp swinging from the ceiling. Until a huge load of shoes fell on him from above.

Errr, we only made it to half time.

remember Steve Martin's movie, Roxanne (with Daryl Hannah), it was a modern version of the story, losely based on Cyrano de Bergerac
