Cyrano de Bergerac Tickets
James McAvoy will star in a new production of Edmond Rostand's classic play Cyrano de Bergerac, which is freely adapted by Martin Crimp, and directed by Jamie Lloyd who will kick-off a year-long residency of productions at the Playhouse Theatre.
Cyrano de Bergerac is a late 19th-century play by Rostand which dramatises the life of its titular character, a 17th-century French playwright and author. There have been multiple revivals of Cyrano in the West End and on Broadway, as well as film and radio adaptations.
This latest adaptation will star McAvoy, who reunites with director Lloyd after their previous West End collaboration of Macbeth at Trafalgar Studios in 2013. The actor's other West End credits include The Ruling Class (also at Trafalgar Studios), Three Days of Rain at the Apollo Theatre, and Breathing Corpses at the Royal Court. He is known for his screen roles in the X-Men series as Professor X, and the M Night Shyamalan films Split and Glass.
Director Lloyd has directed this summers musical production at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, Andrew Lloyd Webber's Evita, and his West End production of Harold Pinter's Betrayal - which starred Tom Hiddleston and rounded off the director's season of the playwright's short plays - transfers to Broadway.
Cyrano de Bergerac is adapted by Martin Crimp, whose recent London productions include When We Have Sufficiently Tortured Each Other at the National Theatre, The Treatment at the Almeida Theatre, and In the Republic of Happiness at the Royal Court Theatre.
