Elizaveta Grushinskaya, the beautiful aging ballet dancer, will wear sumptuous, elegant costumes including this 1920s drop waist evening gown. Costume Designer Robert Perdziola also designed a lovely ballet dance costume for Grushinskaya that you’ll have to see in person at the show.

Robert Perdziola designed this 1920s-inspired suit to look a bit rumpled and to hang loosely on actor Bobby Smith’s frame, as Otto Kringelein is a sick and dying man looking to live his last days in style.
