Aspects of Love musical (1989)

Show started in 1989 in the West End. The creators were: Gillian Lynne, choreographer & Trevor Nunn was a director. Moderately successful, the musical lasted for more than 1320 performances and original had following actors in it: A. Crumb, S. Brightman, M. Ball, K. Colson, M. Praed, K. R. McAllen, D. Morrison & B. Ingham. In the play, there was participation of one of the most famous James Bonds – notable Roger Moore. In an interview about the reasons for leaving, he mentioned technical inability of interaction with the orchestra in musicals. Too bad that his departure was made in just 2 weeks before the opening date and urgently he had to be replaced by Kevin Colson.

Theatre, named in honor of Prince, Prince of Wales Theatre, took the play in the West End. It migrated to Broadway in 1990 – a year after the successful premiere and closed with less than a resounding success – we can say, absolutely without it, because only 399 performances were shown, if including the pre-premiere 22 shows. After that, the actor John Cullum joined to the main composition of a troupe. The American public did not take the show, and critics said that the closure of the musical was a complete loss of investment in non-small amount of USD 8 million – at that time, probably the biggest money failure by the standards of Broadway.

Musical had a lot of world shows – Canada, Finland, Philippines, Denmark, Japan, Hungary, UK – that's where it had visited in 1991. In 2007, his resurrection was made in UK, 15 years later. And as many as 36 weeks, it played on the UK with the cast: K. Smith, R. Finlayson, A. Kilian & S. Peo.

After another three years, in 2010, from July to September, the director Trevor Nunn has made the new resurrection (again with the other actors). Attempts to revive it in the US were not undertaken because that the public did not take a strong classical for the UK’s theaters. 2012 witnessed the showing in Deutschland and in 2014 – in UK again.
