Edmond Rostand’s critically acclaimed and Olivier Award-winning production of Cyrano de Bergerac, loosely adapted by Martin Crimp, directed by Jamie Lloyd and starring James McAvoy begins Friday, March 18 and runs through Saturday March 26.

This follows a successful run at the Harold Pinter Theater in London, before visiting the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) in New York in April.

General booking for the highly anticipated show opened in November and has already sold out the 1,500-seat venue for nine performances.

James Haworth, Theater Manager at the Theater Royal, said: “I am delighted that The Jamie Lloyd Company’s Rush ticketing initiative has been made available for Cyrano de Bergerac’s run in Glasgow.
