PETER DINKLAGE STARS AS CYRANO
Fresh from bringing HBO's riveting fantasy epic Game Of Thrones to a close, scene-stealing Emmy winner Peter Dinklage returns to the stage to star as the titular Cyrano De Bergerac once more. First enjoying a developmental month-long run at Goodspeed Musical's Norma Terris Theatre in Chester last year, it now makes its hotly anticipated Broadway debut, adapted and directed by Dinklage's very own wife, the respected theatermaker Erica Schmidt.
A musical adaptation of Edmond Rostand's colorful play detailing the life of the famed libertine, poet, and soldier, this brand new production features all new music and lyrics from Grammy-winning alt-rockers The National and Carin Besser. Whilst this is far from the first adaptation of the play that was said to keep the audience clapping on their feet for a full hour after its first appearance, it certainly looks like it will be a winner this fall!
