'Love' is in the air this weekend

Genesius Theatre presents Andrew Lloyd Weber’s "Aspects of Love" this weekend (August 19-21) in the Reading Public Museum’s Atrium for a concert performance of the musical that many call his greatest score to date. Featuring the song, “Love Changes Everything,” this show proves that it certainly does, often in the most unexpected ways. Get your tickets early! This event has sold out for the last two years…we’d hate to turn you away!
Spanning three generations, this bold and ambitious chamber opera, heralded by critics as “a masterpiece” and a “triumph”, explores the landscape of the human heart. The Genesius production stars acclaimed singer/actress Maria Damore as “Rose Vibert”, a tempestuous French actress whose affair with young “Alex Dillingham” (played by Genesius favorite Jon Browning) sets the plot in motion. Genesius leading man Kirk Lawrence is featured as “George”, Alex’s worldly uncle, and Anita Lews recreates her performance of “Giulietta”, a role she played in the Berks County premiere of the show in 2003. Kathryn Majewsky and Katie Ott share the role of “Jenny Dillingham”.

With direction by Christopher Sperat, music direction by Dave Neel and choreography by Amanda Leam Guistwite, "Aspects Of Love" promises to be theatrical event of the summer.

Doors open at 7 p.m. for the 8 p.m. show on Friday and Saturday and at 6 p.m. for the 7 p.m. show on Sunday.

Tickets are $35 each, including hors d’oeuvres. Cash bar available. For tickets and more info, visit www.GenesiusTheatre.org  or call 610-373-9500.
