James McAvoy returns to the West End in an inventive new adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s masterwork by Martin Crimp, with direction by Jamie Lloyd.
Fresh from their triumphant Broadway transfer of Betrayal, The Jamie Lloyd Company’s latest production blazes into the Playhouse Theatre with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyrano’s powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.
Supported by British Airways, The Jamie Lloyd Company will also be deepening its commitment to making theatre more accessible across their season at the Playhouse - offering 15,000 free tickets to first time theatre-goers (privately invited through a designated outreach programme) and 15,000 tickets at £15 for key workers, under 30s, and those receiving job seeker’s allowance or other government benefits.
These tickets can only be booked via this special link - www.atgtickets.com/cyrano15 - and the first dates will be released on Monday 4th November at 12pm. Click the link for FAQ's and more information.
The Playhouse Theatre, originally known as the Royal Avenue Theatre, opened in 1882. The Theatre closed for refurbishment in 1905 and reopened under its current name in 1907. The venue staged the premier of Shaw’s Arms and the Man and has hosted WS Gilbert, Gladys Cooper, The Almeida Theatre Company, The Peter Hall Company and Janet McTeer.
