Clémence Poésy will be playing Roxanne in Cyrano de Bergerac on Broadway this Fall at the American Airlines Theatre in New York.  This will be her Broadway debut after appearing in various film, theatre and television productions. The play features a new translation by Ranjit Bolt and Roundabout Theatre Company describes it as an “enduring masterwork with some of the wittiest lines ever written for the stage”.  The play will start previewing on September 14 and open officially on October 11 until November 25.

Cyrano de Bergerac is the story of a nobleman (Douglas Hodge as Cyrano) with a head for poetry and a nose for miles. Everyone in Paris adores him, except his true love Roxane, who can’t see past his prominent facial feature. Instead, Roxane falls in love with Christian (Kyle Soller), a handsome cadet. But when Christian tells Cyrano that Roxane makes him tongue-tied, Cyrano provides him with the romantic words that are guaranteed to win the young lady’s heart.
