Last Chance to catch Theatre de la Jeune Lune's revival of its 1989 hit, Cyrano, playing through Jan. 30 in Minneapolis. (The show was to close Jan. 31, but that last performance was recently cancelled.)

Known for its international influences and buoyant physical stagings, Jeune Lune nonetheless bases its production on the Edmond Rostand romantic classic. The show opened Nov. 19, 1998.

Dominique Serrand, the company's co-artistic director, recreates his 1989 role for the new staging, directed by co-artistic director Barbra Berlovitz.

Actress-singer Norah Long plays Roxanne, the object of Cyrano's affection, and Joel Spence plays pretty but shallow Christian, who also loves Roxanne. Also in the company are ensemble members Robert Rosen, Vincent Gracieux, Steven Epp, Catherine Johnson and Rebecca Myers.

Original music is by Michael Koerner. Designers are Serrand and Epp (sets), Sonya Berlovits (costumes) and Rosen (lighting). Tickets are $9-$30. Jeune Lune is at 105 North First St. In the warehouse district of downtown Minneapolis. Call (612) 333-6200 for information.
