It has been announced that Jamie Bogyo, who played Christian in the smash hit West End production Moulin Rouge! is set to play Alex in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s renowned musical Aspects of Love at the Lyric Theatre. Bogyo joins Michael Ball, who originated the role himself in 1989 and returns 34 years after having starred in the original West End production, this time to portray the role of George.

It’s delightfully melodramatic, emotional, filled with beloved classic numbers and is here for a strictly limited season! Don’t miss out, book your Aspects of Love tickets today!

About Aspects of Love
Based on David Garnett's novella of the same name, Aspects of Love explores a number of chaotic love affairs over the course of three generations through a group of friends and family members and their various romantic relationships. From a noble Englishman falling in love with a glamorous actress, to a teenager falling in love with her much older cousin (yes, you read that right), Aspects of Love presents a wildly ambitious story about the foolish extremes that the heart will go to and is set to the beat of some of Andrew Lloyd Webber's most treasured originals, such as "Love Changes Everything" and "Anything But Lonely,".
The creatives of Aspects of Love
Aspects of Love contains lyrics by Don Black and Charles Hart. The new production of the show will be directed by Jonathan Kent (Gypsy, Singin' in the Rain) and produced by Nica Burns (Everybody's Talking About Jamie).

From as early as I can recall, writing has always been my passion. Being able to combine this with my love for theatre has been a rewarding and exhilarating experience. I truly believe that there is magic in seeing a story brought to life on stage, and this is what I would like to promote to audiences.
