What happens when a high-powered composer like Andrew Lloyd Webber decides to write a musical's book as well as its music? Aspects of Love happens: a show with a fragmented story line and spasmodic character development but lots and lots of singing. The premise seems promising enough: a young man, his uncle, and his uncle's mistress all fall for the same charismatic actress. Director Fred Anzevino and music director Jeremy Ramey play to the show's strengths, packing it with strong singer-actors who are capable of giving Webber's characters the illusion of depth while making his songs soar. Three in particular—Kelli Harrington, Colette Todd, and Rochelle Therrien—set the stage on fire whenever they're on it. —Jack Helbig
