Following a sold-out West End season in 2019, the unmissable revival of Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac is heading to Glasgow Theatre Royal this spring and it will feature a rather famous Glaswegian. The Olivier Award-winning production will make a much-anticipated return for a limited season, first opening in London’s Harold Pinter Theatre before touring to Glasgow and the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York.
Returning to his hometown of Glasgow, James McAvoy reprises his role as Cyrano, who is fierce with a pen and notorious in combat. Cyrano almost has it all, but longs to win the heart of his true love. There’s just one big problem: he has a nose as huge as his heart.
Will a society engulfed by narcissism get the better of De Bergerac, or can his mastery of language set Roxane’s world alight? Jamie Lloyd directs a world-class cast in an electrifying ensemble performance that celebrates linguistic ingenuity and the power of human connection.
Cyrano De Bergerac is set to take place at Glasgow Theatre Royal, the oldest theatre in Glasgow and the longest running in Scotland, from March 18-26 with limited run of just nine performances. Matinée performances will take place on Sunday 20th and Thursday 24th March at 2.30pm and evening performances will run from 7.30pm, Tuesdays- Saturdays.
As part of The Jamie Lloyd Company’s commitment to accessibility, 12,000 tickets priced at £15 will be available across the UK productions, with 75% specifically for under 30s, key workers and those receiving government benefits.
