Aspects Of Love - Recording, Transfer?
Posted 04 August 2010 - 01:56 AM
was wondering how Aspects of Love is doing. Does anyone know if there will be a new recording? Any possibility of an extension/transfer (really hoping it comes to NY - the West End has had what, 2 - 3 Aspects "revivals" including tours that stopped in the West end... we only had the original)

With the current economic climate and the fact Lewd-Rubbers shows donít sell like they used to Ö
It closes in almost two months time so plenty of time for a decision Ö Iím waiting for the announcement of their Christmas show. Please let it be Road Show or Merrily

Michael Arden is the best Alex of the four I've seen - wonderful. Felt that Katherine Kingsley was a bit young and shrill as Rose though while Dave Willetts is a bit too old; having said that I don't usually care for him but he was good here (but what accent was he doing?). Rosalie Craig and Rebecca Brewer good as Guilietta and Jenny.
Better than the 2007 tour - which was too much about David Essex; a better Alex than the 1993/4 tour but otherwise equal (and that production had a stronger Rose and George, IMO). But I'm a bit perplexed why it has received lukewarm reviews and been largely ignored.
A recording would be nice just to hear the new arrangements but you're right, they just don't do cast recordings anymore
Btw Sondheim's Roadshow is coming to the Menier in autumn 2011; he said so at the recent Prom Plus.
