Summer has officially arrived and so has the annual Davis Shakespeare Festival. This year, festival organizers have paired the classic tale of "Cyrano de Bergerac" with a lesser-known musical comedy "Bells Are Ringing." Today on Insight, the festival's two artistic directors, Rob Salas and Gia Battista, join us in studio to talk about what audiences can expect to see this summer. Salas is directing "Cyrano de Bergerac and Battista is playing Ella Peterson in "Bells Are Ringing."
