James McAvoy to star in Cyrano de Bergerac

Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac is being reimagined and freely adapted by Martin Crimp. Cyrano is a strong-willed man of many talents, a soldier, a duelist, a poet and a musician. However, his abnormally large nose makes him unsure of himself. He is, however,  sure that no one would ever be able to love him as he is. Roxane is the object of his affection, but he knows that nothing can come of his feelings for her. He is dejected when she shares with him her love for the handsome young Christian and extracts from him a promise to keep her beloved safe. What lengths will Cyrano go to in order to keep his promise? Will his words ever be able to overcome his physical appearance? What will become of his unrequited love?

This new production is brought to the West End theatre by the Jamie Lloyd Company in association with the Ambassador Theatre Group.

This production will reunite Jamie Lloyd and James McAvoy, who have worked together on multiple occasions including The Ruling Class and Macbeth at London’s Trafalgar Studios as well as Three Days of Rain at the Apollo Theatre and the Heart of Darkness radio drama for the BBC.

He starred in the Lewis classic The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and the Academy Award-winning film The Last King of Scotland and the M. Night Shyamalan film Split. He has become incredibly well known for his portrayal of Professor Charles Xavier in multiple X-Men and various Marvel films. His work on the stage includes Privates on ParadeBreathing CorpsesThree Days RainMacbeth, and The Ruling Class. Additional casting announcements will be made in due course.

David Williams23rd February

Mcavoy made everyone else(all excellent actors) look wooden. Awesome

DH23rd February

The seats we booked were the most uncomfortable that I have ever sat in at the theatre. We only had sight of a third of the stage. There was no warning of this when booked. Absolutely disgraceful. Superb play though

Michael Murphy23rd February

Simply one of the best plays I have seen.

KAITLYN22nd February

The play was fantastic- I was constantly moved through this story. The seats are not good. They were advertised as limited leg room, but really were obstructed view. Had I known that, we probably would not have gone.

Nadia Albert22nd February

Excellent play with stunning actors, amazing settings.

Margaret Coyle20th February

Just an amazing production.

Anne Dudley Buchanan19th February

Terrific production. All the actors absolutely engaged, whether as a ‘moving part’ or still. Amazing energy and pace. Humour as well as drama and strong emotion. Palpable physicality under restraint or in full flow. A great piece of theatre.

Jessica Wood19th February

Danielle Whitton19th February
