Quotes & Highlights

Olivia D’Abo starred as Kevin Arnold’s older sister Karen in The Wonder Years and had a recurring role in Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

Description

Ruskin Group Theatre proudly presents an adventure based on the legend of 17th Century French dramatist and duelist Savinien de Bergerac, now known the world over as Cyrano. Afflicted with an enormous and bulbous nose, he is convinced that no woman can ever love him, and thus makes himself notorious in Paris for his courage, gallantry, and charm of verse. Putting aside his own love for the beautiful Roxanne (Olivia D’Abo) he offers his powers of expression to his rival, as this hysterical and stirring adventure unfolds.
