James McAvoy to Reprise ‘Cyrano De Bergerac’ Role at Brooklyn Academy of Music in 2022
McAvoy and his perfectly normal-sized nose will be performing at the BAM this spring.
Deadline has reported that the Olivier award-winning revival of Cyrano de Bergerac will finally have the Brooklyn Academy of Music performance that was promised back in 2020. James McAvoy will return to the production as the lead character, Cyrano, the large-nosed soldier who desperately wants to seduce his own distant cousin. He’ll be sharing the stage with fellow performers Michelle Austin, Adam Best, Sam Black, and Nari Blair-Mangat, among others.
This play has already been honored across the pond in 2019 with the Olivier Award (a coveted British award named after Legendary actor Laurence Olivier) for Best Play Revival. Unfortunately, its North American showings were canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic, which is at least part of the reason why it hasn’t won any big awards in the US (yet). But as more theater fans get vaccinated and reduce the spread of infection, it’s starting to be safe enough to attend theatrical performances again.
McAvoy has delivered several fantastic performances on the silver screen in recent years. He is most well known for films like Split, where he delivers a chilling performance as a person suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder whose split personalities include an overtly religious, borderline-abusive spinster and an animalistic cannibal, among others. He reprised the role in the movie Glass, which was the final film in M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable trilogy. McAvoy has also enjoyed recurring roles as a younger version of Charles Xavier AKA Professor X in several X-Men movies, including X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Cyrano de Bergerac will debut at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York on April 5th and will continue through May 22nd, 2022. Buy your tickets now, because it’s highly likely to sell out quickly.
