Bogyo – who made his professional theatre debut in the lead role of Christian in the smash hit West End production of Moulin Rouge! The Musical – will play Alex, the role that Michael Ball himself originated in 1989.
Thirty-four years after having starred in the original West End production, Michael Ball returns to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s celebrated musical Aspects of Love at the Lyric Theatre for a strictly limited season, this time playing the role of George.
Michael Ball said: “I’m thrilled to announce that the role of Alex in Aspects of Love will be played by Jamie Bogyo. He’s tall, good looking, sings like a dream and is half my age…..I hate him! He will be amazing.”
Jamie’s casting was announced in a very special performance on the Ken Bruce Show on BBC Radio 2, with a Jamie and Michael teaming up to perform the iconic number, Love Changes Everything.
With original music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Don Black and Charles Hart, based on the novel by David Garnett and directed by Jonathan Kent, this heart-breaking story of passion, love, life and loss in post-war France and Italy, follows three generations of the Dillingham family spanning 17 years.
Aspects of Love will begin performances at the Lyric Theatre London on 12 May 2023 for a limited 26-week season until 11 November 2023.
