With productions like The Sorcerer, All The Fine Boys, as well as Cyrano on her resume, Schmidt, 46, has made a name for herself in the theatre world.

Erica’s musical adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s classic play tells the story of Cyrano de Bergerac (Dinklage) as he pines for the affections of the beautiful Roxanne (Haley Bennett), who has fallen in love with another man, Christian de Neuvillette (Kelvin Harrison Jr.). 

Though Cyrano understands that his social status and physical appearance will forever keep him apart from his love, he offers his skills as a gifted poet to Christian in an effort to bring him and Roxanne together.
