Great production of Cyrano, especially considering the very small venue. The actor who played Cyrano did a marvelous job. Most of the other actors are very good as well.
It's an entertaining show. A bit on the long side (2 1/2 hours), but...continued

Superb production, as have been many of the Ruskin group's shows. We couldn't have asked for a better Cyrano and Roxanne and the supporting actors for the most part were outstanding as well. Kudos to all!

Sometimes the relative youth of the cast and the small stage makes this production seem like a college show, but a brilliant performance by leading man John Colello makes it one worth seeing. Also watch for clever use (or wholesale creation) of...continued

This is a tiny theatre and they held the curtain because some "special guests" were late, but once it started, it was very good. John Colella, who played Cyrano, was wonderful; he made the show. The rest of the cast was all good, Olivia D'Abo...continued

A very lively representation. I am French and know the play very well. I loved hearing it in English. The actors are awesome, especially Cyrano. I strongly recommend this show.

This was wonderful fun. The venue is very small, less than 50 seats and while at first it was a little startling, you quickly grow to absolutely love being so close to the story. Cyrano was acted just brilliantly. Most of the rest of the acting...continued

Very cute play, great acting and great venue. Small theater with seating for around 50 people and not a bad seat in the house! Free parking in lot and very little props used. Two intermissions with a running time of 2.5 hours.

John Colella is AMAZING as Cyrano! He makes you fall in love with his character. I would see ANY play where he is a lead. Lovely small theatre.
