It has been announced that Jamie Lloyd’s Olivier Award nominated production is set to play at the Brooklyn Academy of Music from the 8th to the 31st May.

Cyrano de Bergerac recently completed a run at the Playhouse Theatre and was the first in the Jamie Lloyd Company’s year long season at the theatre. Edmond Rostand’s play was adapted for the stage by Martin Crimp.

Fierce with a pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all – if only he could 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?

It has also been announced that James McAvoy will be reprising his role as the title character for the run at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. It continues his collaboration with director Jamie Lloyd following The Ruling Class and Macbeth (Trafalgar Studios), Three Days of Rain (Apollo Theatre), and Heart of Darkness (BBC Radio 4). 

This production was recently nominated for five Olivier Awards including: Best Actor (McAvoy), Best Director (Lloyd), and Best Revival.

Talking about the news BAM Artistic Director David Binder said, “This production is a visceral, bold, and wholly exciting take on a classic. I’m thrilled to welcome Jamie Lloyd and James McAvoy to BAM this spring and look forward to sharing this one of a kind experience with our audiences.”

Cyrano de Bergerac will run at the Brooklyn Academy of Music from the 8th to the 31st May.
