The Complete Aspects of Love Reviews
When I turned 16, I saw Aspects of Love on Broadway, and had the opportunity to go backstage and meet the original lead, Michael Ball, the famous West End performer and recording artist. This, for a theatre geek such as myself, is approximately equivalent to meeting the Pope.
Why is this book out of print? It's really quite good. It gives a great look at the hard work that is put into a show before, during, and after each performance. I got it after years of searching in a used bookstore. It's really worth the hunt if you want it. It comes complete with a nice poster and there's a picture of a young Michael Ball with a rat tail. How can you lose?
Kurt Ganzl has written an excellent book about a musical that unfortunately flopped. Complete with background history on David Garnet's novel, pictures of the production, and complete libretto. A must-read for anyone into musical theatre. Sadly, it's out of print.
This book has oodles of photographs and information about the musical. It is very well researched, and includes information about David Garnett, the history of the time period of the musical, and of course Andrew Lloyd Webber's writing the musical.
