Roundabout to produce Broadway revival
Douglas Hodge, the actor who picked up a Tony in 2010 for his lead perf in “La Cage aux Folles,” will return to Broadway this fall in a revival of “Cyrano de Bergerac” from the Roundabout Theater Company.
Production will be helmed by Brit director Jamie Lloyd, who directed Hodge last year in a production of John Osborne’s “Inadmissable Evidence” at the Donmar Warehouse in London. Staging will use Ranjit Bolt’s 1995 translation of Edmond Rostand’s 1897 French-language play.
The familiar tale of a big-nosed, swashbuckling poet in love with a beautiful heiress, “Cyrano” last played the Rialto in a 2007 incarnation directed by David Leveaux and toplined by Kevin Kline and Jennifer Garner.
Futher details regarding casting and creative team remain to be announced for the Roundabout version.
“Cyrano” begins previews Sept. 14 ahead of an Oct. 11 opening at the American Airlines Theater.
