Synopsis

Lovers come together, break apart, exchange partners, and return to each other in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Aspects of Love. Adapted from David Garnett’s novella, the musical follows a group of friends and family and their fluctuating romantic entanglements: Alex Dillingham, a young Englishman who falls in love at first sight with Rose Vibert, a magnetic actress; his uncle, George, with whom Rose falls in love and chooses over Alex; George’s on-again off-again mistress, Giulietta; and George and Rose’s teenage daughter, Jenny, who falls in love for the first time with her much-older cousin, Alex. Aspects of Love features some of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s most beloved classics, including ”Love Changes Everything” and “Anything But Lonely.” It is a sweeping, ambitious tale of the heights and follies of the heart.
