More about the productions:
CYRANO de BERGERAC Roundabout Theatre Company's Cyrano de Bergerac officially opened on October 11, 2012 at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway and will play a limited engagement through November 25, 2012. Tony Award winner Douglas Hodge stars as "Cyrano", Clemence Poésy makes her Broadway debut as "Roxane" and Broadway veteran Patrick Page plays the "Comte De Guiche." The design team includes Soutra Gilmour (Sets & Costumes), Japhy Weideman (Lights), Dan Moses Schreier (Sound). This production of Cyrano de Bergerac, by Edmond Rostand, will feature a translation by Ranjit Bolt, directed by Jamie Lloyd. Cyrano is a nobleman with a tremendous wit and an enormous nose. All of Paris adores him except for his true love Roxane, who can’t see past his all-too-prominent facial feature. Instead, she falls for a handsome young cadet named Christian. But when Christian admits he’s tongue-tied with Roxane, Cyrano gives him the romantic words guaranteed to win her heart. With Christian’s looks and Cyrano’s language, it’s a foolproof plan! Or is it?
THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD Roundabout Theatre Company’s (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) Broadway production of The Mystery of Edwin Drood began performances October 19th. The Mystery of Edwin Drood stars Stephanie J. Block, Will Chase, Gregg Edelman, Jim Norton, and Chita Rivera with Andy Karl, Jessie Mueller, Betsy Wolfe, Nicholas Barasch, Peter Benson, and Robert Creighton. The Mystery of Edwin Drood opens officially on Tuesday, November 13th, 2012 at Studio 54 on Broadway (254 West 54th St.). This is a limited engagement through February 10th, 2013. The Mystery of Edwin Drood will make its first-ever return to Broadway since winning the Tony “Triple Crown” (Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Score)! Who killed Edwin Drood? It’s a question that has stumped audiences for years—now it’s your turn to answer one of Broadway’s most baffling mysteries. Take a trip back in time to a Victorian music hall where a rowdy ensemble of actors mounts a staging of Charles Dickens’s unfinished novel. Everyone on stage is a suspect in the murder of young Edwin Drood—and it’s up to you to choose the killer! Is it John Jasper, Edwin’s protective but slightly maniacal uncle? Rosa Bud, his reluctant betrothed? The debauched Princess Puffer? Each performance ends differently, depending on what the audience decides!
