The Ruskin is one of the most reliable theaters in LA. The premier of Dad confirmed that opinion once more. A confident autobiography well written and acted, it stays compelling throughout.

I haven't missed a show at the Ruskin for several years now, and have only the best things to say about what I've seen, but this show was not up to the normal standards. The acting was good, but the story, although real, did not really hold my...continued

Cris D’Annunzio was raised in a traditional East Coast nuclear family – in the sense that his grandparents, both Italian immigrants, lived in the house and there were always bombs going off! He survived to attend Princeton University, where he played football. Cris got his start in acting when he was ‘discovered’ by the John Houseman Acting Company while moving instruments for the symphony orchestra at Chautauqua Institute in upstate NY – his summer job during college. The experience of riding his bike to the theatre and performing stuck with him. After a brief stint in the NFL with the Buffalo Bills, Cris embarked on an acting and writing career that has taken him from the stage to the screen – both big and small. LA Stage appearances include COBB at the Falcon Theater, award __winning Cockraoch Nation __at LATC, and the World Premiere of Beth Henley’s Sisters Of The Winter Madrigal. NY credits include Miss Julie at Manhattan Theatre Club. Selected film credits include Ridley Scott’s American Gangster and Chasing 3000 with Ray Liotta, which Cris wrote. Cris has had numerous TV roles which include appearances on __Without a Trace __and Law And Order.
