Opening night is April 14. This production recently completed a 5-star, acclaimed run at London's Harold Pinter Theatre and is currently playing Theatre Royal Glasgow from March 18-26.

McAvoy leads a superb ensemble in this theatrical tour-de-force that captures timeless passion through spoken word, contemporary poetry, and raw physicality. Cyrano seduces in raps and rhymes, using his linguistic brilliance to help another man win the heart of his one true love-above all-championing his own unbridled love for words.

Winner of the Olivier Award for Best Revival, the Jamie Lloyd Company's latest production blazes into the Harvey Theater to celebrate Cyrano's powerful resistance against overwhelming odds.

Joining James McAvoy (Cyrano de Bergerac) in the company are 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), Sophie Mercell, (Marie-Louise), Evelyn Miller (Roxane), Nima Taleghani (Ligniere) and Brinsley Terence (Theatre Owner).
