Michael Ball to star in London revival of Aspects of Love in 2023
West End star Michael Ball will appear in a major London revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber's romantic musical Aspects of Love at the Lyric Theatre next year. The double Olivier Award winning musical theatre star returns to the show having appeared in the original production in 1989 as Alex. This time round Ball will play the part of George, an aristocratic uncle to his original character of Alex. Speaking with Deadline, Ball said "It’s going to be a completely reimagined show. You won’t recognize it. I’m playing George, and I’m going to sing Love Changes Everything". The song Love Changes Everything was originally sung by Ball in the role of Alex, and has become a favourite of Ball's at his concert performances. Ball added "Lloyd Webber might write a new song for the reimagined production." In what seems like an impossibly long and successful career Ball has moved from the hot young star of Les Misérables and Aspects of Love, to comic master in shows like Hairspray, to mass murderer in Sweeney Todd and coming full circle to the roles of Javert in Les Misérables and George in Aspects of Love. Jonathan Kent, who directed Ball and Imelda Staunton in Sweeney Todd will direct a re-imagined revival for the 21st century. with further creatives to be announced. The production is produced by Nica Burns who, according to Deadline, will arrange for Kent, Ball, Lloyd Webber and the show’s songwriters Don Black and Charles Hart to gather for a workshop in London before the end of the year to explore how to structure the piece so that Ball, as George, can perform Love Changes Everything. In a statement Michael Ball said" Aspects of Love holds a very special place in my heart.I am absolutely delighted to revisit Andrew Lloyd Webber's glorious score in a re-imagined chamber production in the West End from May next year. I am so happy to be collaborating again with he brilliant director Jonathan Kent who was so inspiring when we worked together on Sweeney Todd." Aspect of Love will play a limited 26-week season at the Lyric Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue from 12 May 2023 with an official opening night on 25 May 2023. Tickets to go on sale soon.

Michael Ball to write debut novel ‘The Empire’, the first of two books
Musicals superstar Michael Ball has written his first novel, the first in a two book deal. Titled The Empire, the debut book from Michael Ball comes out on 13 October 2022 in the UK, Ireland and Australia. Zaffre, the commercial fiction imprint of Bonnier Books UK, is to publish the novel. Set in the early 1920s, The Empire tells the story of a fictional theatre of the same name in the north of England. Known as ‘the jewel of the north’, it’s a palace of dreams which holds a very special place in the nation’s heart. But it’s not all bright lights and encores and the actors are not the only ones donning a disguise. With whispers of a cover-up, a scandal and sibling rivalry, tensions rise along with the curtain. For there is treachery at the heart of The Empire Theatre and a dark secret waiting in the wings . . . The Empire is the first in a series which will follow the lives and loves of the Lassiter and Treadwell families, from the aftermath of the Great War, through the Roaring Twenties to the dark days of the Second World War and the Blitz. The series will chart the story of the high notes and low notes of British musical theatre in all its glamour, greasepaint and glory. Michael Ball said in a statement to the press that: "In my opinion, nothing beats the magic of the theatre and, my goodness we’ve missed it! And so I wanted to try and capture that magic on the page, through the fictional lives of a cast of characters whose world revolves around this wonderful theatre, The Empire. Performing and bringing joy to people is what I love more than anything and to think that I might be able to bring that to a different audience is truly exhilarating. I am thrilled to be working with the team at Zaffre and we are having so much fun. These novels are going to be a love letter to all the theatres and performers I’ve worked in and with around the world." Sarah Bauer, editorial director of Zaffre and Kate Parkin, managing director of Adult Trade Publishing, acquired world all language rights in a two-book deal from Gordon Wise and Alastair Lindsey-Renton at Curtis Brown. She said: "Whether on the stage, radio or TV Michael always entertains, moves and delights his audience, and I know the same will be true of his books. To be swept away to another world by such a brilliant and instinctive storyteller as Michael is the escape I think we’re all craving." Kate Parkin, managing director said: "I can think of no one better placed to tell this story of magic and dreams than Michael. The millions of fans worldwide who treasure his trademark warmth and positivity will relish the chance to read a novel set in the world of musical theatre he owns. Michael Ball has been the soundtrack to my life, and it is a privilege and an honour to bring this story to the huge readership it deserves." The Empire will be available on Buy The Empire by Michael Ball More about Aspects of Love starring Michael Ball
