Douglas Hodge stars as the title character in Edmond Rostand's classic.
Comments from published critics
‘‘'Harry Potter' star Clemence Poesy is sublimely understated as Cyrano's great love, Roxane, and Soutra Gilmour's simple, flexible set smartly suggests a Renaissance-era painting brought to life.’’
‘‘Hodge exerts himself mightily to bring Cyrano to life, and he’s at his finest when lunging and parrying, both physically and verbally.’’
‘‘Hodge manages to breathe new fire into the brave, brilliant hero with the Achilles nose. Mind you, the leading man benefits from a superb supporting cast, directed with blazing vigor by Hodge's fellow Brit Jamie Lloyd, and from Ranjit Bolt's witty, earthy translation.’’
‘‘From the moment he makes his truly startling entrance (and no, I won’t tell you how), Mr. Hodge is as light and oxygenating as air, even as the pure physical impact of his performance sets you reeling.’’
