“This production, superbly directed by Jamie Lloyd and starring James McAvoy in an almost literally ravishing performance, is a triumph.”
—THE NEW YORK TIMES, CRITICS’ PICK
Apr 5—May 22, 2022
 
Cyrano de Bergerac
Theater
US Premiere

The Jamie Lloyd Company
By Edmond Rostand
In a new version by Martin Crimp
Directed by Jamie Lloyd

 
“A heart-stopping production”
—New York Magazine
Direct from London’s West End, three-time Olivier-nominated stage and screen actor James McAvoy (The Last King of Scotland, Atonement, X-Men) makes his BAM debut in a radical new adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s masterwork by Martin Crimp, with direction by Jamie Lloyd (Betrayal).

McAvoy leads a superb ensemble in this “breathtakingly exciting” (Evening Standard) 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.
