Aspects of Love
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Lyrics by Don Black and Charles Hart,
Based on the novel by David Garnett.
Following its acclaimed première at Manchester’s award-winning Hope Mill Theatre, Jonathan O’Boyle’s brand-new revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s glorious musical transfers to Southwark for a strictly limited season.
From the cobbled streets of Paris to the mountains of the Pyrenees, Aspects of Love is a sweeping, epic and heart-breaking love story spanning seventeen years. Passion, desire, family ties and friendship bind six people and three generations together as they come to appreciate how love changes everything.
Alex falls in love with the alluring actress, Rose Vibert. Following a little persuasion, Rose joins Alex at his Uncle’s villa. As the pair embark on a steamy, passionate affair, the unexpected arrival of Uncle George changes all their lives – and those around them – forever.
Featuring the iconic songs ‘Love Changes Everything’ and ‘Seeing is Believing’ and first seen at the Prince of Wales Theatre in 1989, Aspects of Love celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2019. This major revival, directed by Jonathan O’Boyle (Hair, Pippin), is an intimately reimagined production of one of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s richest scores, which will take you on a thrilling and romantic journey through a tangled web of love, lies and longing.
Please note when booking that seats in the front row will be wooden chairs with café-style tables in front.
