Press quotes from the original London production of Aspects of Love, Prince of Wales Theatre, April 1989.

“A remarkably daring piece of work.”
“Trevor Nunn’s very fine production is a rare example of theatrical intimacy succeeding in large-scale circumstances…”
“…brilliantly choreographed by Gillian Lynne.”
” …the musical direction by Michael Reed and the sound reproduction by Martin Levan is of the highest quality. You will want to see this show not because of its showbiz hype, but because there are new creative forces at work here which may yet define the lyric theatre of the future.”
Michael Coveney, Financial Times

“The daring shown here tonight deserves to win our admiration.”
Jack Tinker, Daily Mail

“The musical texture becomes lively and varied and the stage starts to flood with real emotion…(Trevor Nunn)…creates both images of rapturous gaiety…and moments of desolating sadness. Mr. Lloyd Webber shows a capacity to reach emotions that other composers do not touch.”
Michael Billington, Guardian

“A lyrical, heart-breakingly romantic chamber piece.”
“The brilliance of the scoring and of Trevor Nunn’s production…”
Aspects is a cynical, edgy and at the same time charming piece…a magical energy of music and mood that could well lead to a whole new world of intelligent and intimate adult singalongs.”
Sheridan Morley, Herald Tribune
