Love changes everything – but one thing that hasn’t changed is Michael Ball’s devotion to the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Aspects of Love. 34 years after starring in the original West End production, Ball is back headlining a revival at the Lyric Theatre in London. He’s now playing the role of George, while Jamie Bogyo (who made his professional debut as Christian in Moulin Rouge! The Musical) takes on the part of Alex, which Ball originated back in 1989. The show was a hugely important moment...

Aspects of Love Information
See the two-time Olivier Award-winning actor Michael Ball in a reimagined version of the Andrew Lloyd Webber's celebrated musical. Aspects of Love tickets are available on London Theatre now.
Set over 17 years, the Aspects of Love musical follows three generations of the Dillingham family in post-war France and Italy. Join young soldier Alex Dillingham as they fall for one another. The pair deal with interfering family members: Alex’s uncle George, and George’s mistress Giulietta. When their lives become even more complicated when Rose’s daughter, Jenny, grows up, nothing can ever be the same.
Michael Ball played Alex in the original Aspects of Love London production. 34 years on, Ball heads back to the romantic musical, now as Alex’s uncle George. The show made a chart-topping star out of Ball — his "Love Changes Everything" single stayed on the UK chart for 15 weeks, peaking at No. 2. He’ll lead the highly-anticipated revival, now boasting a glorious score in a reimagined chamber production.
