Written and directed by Constantine Costi, Long Lost Loves (and Grey Suede Gloves) weaves together a series of American composer William Bolcom’s cabaret songs to create a poignant meditation on life, love and living in the moment. 

Barbie spoke to Michael Curtain about Long Lost Loves (and Grey Suede Gloves)

Traditionally Bolcom’s cabaret songs have been performed as encores, but this show looks at them through a different prism to create an evening of storytelling over the piano.
