A love story set against body image, the urgency of the mid 30's body clock and the divine optimism of youth. Barabbas' Cyrano is a celebrity chef, bedrock of the establishment. He competes with young hotshot Christian, for the affections of the beautiful food critic, Roxanne. The classic tale of a very big desire and an even bigger nose played in a contemporary world where what you look like and how successful you are is everything.
"Brilliant...moving... enchanting, pure Barabbas"
"Absolutely glorious... played beautifully"
"Really funny...sharp writing, inspired, terrific comedy"
