Cyrano de Bergerac: tickets are now on sale to the general public
Tickets are now on sale to the general public for the Broadway revival of Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac, translated and adapted by Anthony Burgess.
The play will have a strictly limited 10-week engagement at the Richard Rodgers Theater, where it will open on 1 Nov 2007, following previews from 12 Oct and run through to 23 Dec 2007.
The soulful poet/philosopher and brilliant swordsman Cyrano de Bergerac, a cadet in the French Army, falls for the beautiful, strong-willed Roxane, but is too ashamed of his large nose to tell her. Instead, when he learns that she loves the handsome Christian de Neuvillette, his dim-witted comrade, he pens poetry and love letters to Roxane on Christian's behalf. After many years, the truth is revealed. Will loveor beauty conquer all?
As previously announced Cyrano de Bergerac will be directed by David Leveaux, and feature Kevin Kline, Jennifer Garner and Daniel Sunjatato.
Cyrano de Bergerac was last revied on Broadway at the George Gershwin Theatre in 1984. The play was directed by Terry Hands, and starred Derek Jacobi as Cyrano and Sinéad Cusack as Roxanne.
