"The most breathtakingly exciting show in London right now."—The Evening Standard

"I defy anyone not to fall in love with it."—The Telegraph

James McAvoy (Atonement) stars in this new adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s masterwork. A magnetic soldier full of swagger and brilliant poet, Cyrano de Bergerac is in love with his beautiful and intelligent cousin Roxane without her knowing. His one curse in his life, he feels, is his large nose and although it may have been a forming influence in his razer-sharp wit, he believes that Roxane will reject him. When the handsome but unpoetic Christian falls for the beautiful Roxane, he asks Cyrano to help him win her heart. Cyrano de Bergerac can be delivered as an allegory of inner and outer beauty.
