ALL SHOWS PRESENTED AT THE JAMES BRIDGES THEATER/UCLA
Sunday, August 29, 2021 | 3:00 PM
By: Edmund Rostand
Adapted by: Martin Crimp
Directed by: Jamie Lloyd
Starring: James McAvoy
James McAvoy (X-Men, Atonement) returns to the stage in an inventive new adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac, originally broadcast live to cinemas from the London’s West End. Fierce with a pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all—if only he could win the heart of his true love Roxane. There’s just one big problem: he has a nose as huge as his heart. Will a society engulfed by narcissism get the better of Cyrano—or can his mastery of language set Roxane’s world alight?
"James McAvoy is fierce in radical reboot of romantic classic." — The Guardian
Edmond Rostand’s masterwork is adapted by Martin Crimp and directed by Jamie Lloyd (Betrayal). This classic play will be brought to life with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyrano’s powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.
Runs two hours and fifty minutes including one interval.
May 1 - June 30, 2021
Runtime: 2 hours, 27 minutes
Rating: Treat as PG
Oscar Wilde's uproarious comedy of manners comes to the big screen in LATW's filmed version of the Roundabout Theatre's Broadway production directed by and starring the late Brian Bedford.
“The great actor Brian Bedford is brilliant in this funny and effervescent production. It’s one of the great performances of the season; to miss it would most definitely look like carelessness.” — The New York Times.
