Cyrano de Bergerac – slam poetry meets the 15th century ★★★★★

Despite having to tread the paths of several previous adaptations of Cyrano de Bergerac, Jamie Lloyd’s interpretation is exemplary. We witnessed Lloyd’s stellar talent earlier this year with Betrayal, starring Tom Hiddleston; he now takes on a new challenge with…
