Kline, a two-time Tony winner, starred in a production of "King Lear" last season at the Public Theater.

"Cyrano de Bergerac" will be Garner's Broadway debut. She is best known for her starring role in the television series "Alias."

Sunjata, currently starring in the ESPN miniseries "The Bronx Is Burning," was seen on Broadway in Richard Greenberg's baseball drama "Take Me Out."

The production will be directed by David Leveaux.

"Cyrano de Bergerac" was last seen on Broadway in 1984 in a Royal Shakespeare Company production starring Derek Jacobi and Sinead Cusack. Jose Ferrer starred in a popular revival of the play in 1946 and received an Oscar in 1950 for his performance in a film version.
