Cyrano de Bergerac
Don’t miss Cyrano de Bergerac tickets for a second chance to catch James McAvoy’s electrifying performance
James McAvoy reprises his role as Cyrano de Bergerac as Jamie Lloyd’s Olivier Award-winning production returns to the West End for a strictly limited five-week run at the Harold Pinter Theatre.
Based on the classic French play by Edmond Rostand and adapted by playwright Martin Crimp, Cyrano de Bergerac is a brilliant poet and formidable fighter desperate to win the heart of the beautiful and intellectual Roxane. The only barrier is his crippling anxiety about his large nose. Will society’s obsession with physical beauty overpower Cyrano’s mastery of the language of the heart?
Cyrano de Bergerac premiered in 2019 at the Playhouse Theatre and played a sell-out season with critics fawning over McAvoy’s powerful performance and Lloyd and Crimp’s ingenious adaptation of this classic play.
James McAvoy is regularly hailed as one of Britain’s top actors and is best known for his film performances in The Last King of Scotland and Atonement, both of which garnered him a BAFTA nomination. He also stars as Professor Charles Xavier in several Marvel films, including X-Men: First Class, Deadpool 2 and Dark Phoenix.
On stage, McAvoy is a four-time Olivier Award nominee and a regular collaborator with director Jamie Lloyd. Prior to their work on Cyrano de Bergerac, the pair also staged black comedy The Ruling Class, Shakespeare’s Macbeth and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Three Days of Rain.
McAvoy leads the revival, reprising the title role, alongside Michele Austin (Ragueneau), Adam Best (Le Bret), Sam Black (Armand), Nari Blair-Mangat (Valvert), Vaneeka Dadhria (Beatboxer), Adrian Der Gregorian (Montfleury), Tom Edden (De Guiche), Eben Figueiredo (Christian), Jon Furlong (Annoying Person), Tazmyn-May Gebbett (Minder), Carla Harrison-Hodge (Denise), Mika Onyx Johnson (Usher), Joseph Langdon (Jean-Paul), Luyanda Unati Lewis-Nyawo (Marie-Louise), Evelyn Miller (Roxane), Nima Taleghani (Ligniere), and Brinsley Terene (Theatre Owner).
This revival gives audiences who missed this critically-acclaimed, sell-out production a rare second chance to witness it. Cyrano de Bergerac at the Harold Pinter Theatre is an unmissable highlight of the theatrical calendar as it returns to the West End for five weeks only.
