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

Excellent performance! Great story! Actors are professional and deserve 5 stars. Cyrano and Roxanne - stands out, although everyone was good at playing their part. Definitely recommended to my friends. Just hope that this unseasonable rainfall...continued

Overall an enjoyable way to spend a Sunday aft. Acting uneven. though Cyrano was good, in addition to a couple of the character actors. We got the standin for Roxanne, so not sure if the actress hired for the part would be even stronger. For...continued

Excellent production in a small and intimate theater. The actor playing Cyrano (John Colello) was outstanding. The night we went it was raining hard and the sound of the rain on the tin roof was interesting & pleasant. Every seat was taken and...continued

I'm a fan of the D'Abo sisters and was at first sad to see that Olivia would not play Roxanne for my show, but her alternate, Ms. Cromwell, was excellent. The show, however is driven by John Colella's outstanding performance as Cyrano! It's been...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

Comedy was on a very small theatre, which I loved. At first, was a bit unusual as I had only been to plays/musicals in bigger theatres, but loved the quaint environment! Enjoyed the comedy in an up close production :) The cast was great!

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

Fantastic..since the theater is so small it is very engaging and well staged. My granddaughters really were impressed also.

I loved that the theatre was small and as the audience, we were able to see the cast members fairly up close. The development of the two main characters, Roxanne and Cyrano, was well done. Great production!

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.
