Wednesday 13th June to Saturday 7th July 2018 – Union Theatre, London
It’s Only Life is a musical revue featuring the songs of John Bucchino. His songs have been recorded and performed by Judy Collins, Patti LuPone, Yo-Yo Ma, Audra MacDonald, Liza Minnelli, Art Garfunkel and many others. Conceived by director Daisy Prince and the award-winning songwriter, It’s Only Life is about longing, fulfillment, loss, triumph and ultimately wisdom.
According to the New York Times, Bucchino’s ‘flowing, finely made piano ballads describe an urban life in which relationships come and go in cycles of yearning, fulfillment, heartbreak and healing’ – where romantic love is anticipated with ‘high expectations, high anxiety and open hearts.’ The show won LA’s 2008 Ovation Award for Best Book/Lyrics/Music for an Original Musical.
