Cyrano de Bergerac

Jamie Lloyd's Olivier Award-winning production of Cyrano de Bergerac, starring James McAvoy, debuts in New York at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Check back for information on Cyrano de Bergerac tickets on New York Theatre Guide.

Cyrano de Bergerac is a play in which the title character is an intelligent and artistic man, but he believes himself ugly because of his large nose. As such, he believes he cannot woo Roxane, the woman he loves, and instead helps her woo someone else. The new version of Edmond Rostand's 1897 play has been adapted by Martin Crimp.

Lloyd's Cyrano de Bergerac production first played London's West End in fall 2019. The play won the 2020 Olivier Award for Best Revival, and McAvoy was nominated for Best Lead Actor. Cyrano de Bergerac will play a monthlong return engagement on the West End and a weeklong run in Glasgow, Scotland, before opening in New York City.

Tickets to Cyrano de Bergerac in New York will be available soon.

Our Cyrano de Bergerac Review

I wanted to like this production of Cyrano by The New Group, now playing Off-Broadway's Daryl Roth Theatre. I am a fan of Peter Dinklage (who has the briefest bio in the Playbill) having first seen him in the movie "Station Master." In addition, I heard great things about Erica Schmidt’s direction of Red Bull Theater’s Mac Beth earlier this. I was psyched.
