About The Show

Aspects of Love is a musical in two acts, with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Don Black and Charles Hart, based on the novel by David Garnett.

The show tells the story of passion, love, life and loss across three generations of a family and their artistic companions, against a background of 1940’s France and Italy. “Love Changes Everything” was a huge hit for Michael Ball, who starred in the original production in London and on Broadway. It was first produced at the Prince of Wales Theatre in London on 17th April 1989, where it ran for 1,325 performances before finally closing on 20th June 1992.
