Evangelicals and Art: Aspects of Love

Aspects of Love is a musical that was written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black. It was popular in London when it opened in 1989 but didn’t run as long in New York. The musical looks at different kinds of love in different forms. From romantic to love between children and their parents. This musical has a nice score. Two songs I would recommend are “Love Changes Everything” and “Anything But Lonely.” I hope you guys have a good weekend.  Continue reading
