Cyrano Concludes Its Broadway Run

The famed figher, poet, and lover of the title must put away his sword as Cyrano de Bergerac ends its limited run at Broadway’s American Airlines Theatre today.  Though the production enjoyed many good reviews, it was not a major hit for the non-profit company, Roundabout Theatre Company, that produced it.

Cyrano de Bergerac marked the return of Douglas Hodge to Broadway.  Hodge made a big impression on the New York City theater community when he made his Broadway debut in the 2010 revival of La Cage Aux Folles.  Playing the sensitive Albin, he earned a Tony Award for his efforts.

Douglas Hodge was joined onstage by a fine cast that included Patrick Page (recently playing the Green Goblin in Spiderman), Clemence Poesy, and Max Baker.  Cyrano de Bergerac was written by Edmond Rostand back in 1897, but the poignant and often humorous romance, which continues to charm audiences today, has enjoyed several revivals on Broadway and even a few musical adaptations since then.
