Tickets on sale now for Cyrano de Bergerac starring James McAvoy
Written in 1897, Edmond Rostand’s magnum opus Cyrano de Bergerac is regarded by many as one of the most significant pieces in French literature of all time and has been staged and revived countless times in the UK and the West End. The last notable revival was the 2009 Chichester Festival Theatre production, which starred renowned film and stage actor Joseph Fiennes. This production will see one of the biggest film actors of our generation, James McAvoy (set to star in Stephen King’s IT Chapter Two this year), don the big prosthetic nose. You’ll witness the X-Men star serve you Pinocchio-Cyrano realness this November.
James McAvoy will once again team up with Jamie Lloyd, who has spearheaded the new production of Cyrano as part of his new season after his recent, highly successful Pinter at the Pinter season, whose final play Betrayal starring Tom Hiddleston broke box office records at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London. The pair last worked together on Macbeth and The Ruling Class at the West End’s Trafalgar Studios.
James McAvoy initially hinted at the new Cyrano de Bergerac play two years ago when he posted a photo of himself on Instagram dressed as Professor X whilst wearing a long, fake nose and reading the Martin Crimp script.
