AMOUR, a fantasy musical about daring to dream and the power of self-belief receives its UK premiere at Charing Cross Theatre.

Nominated for five Tony Awards on Broadway including Best Musical, AMOUR features music by the multi-award winning French composer Michel Legrand with English lyrics by Jeremy Sams.

Adapted from the 1943 short story Le Passe-Muraille by Marcel Aymé, AMOUR is a charming musical that’s sure to entice you in its dreamy, idyllic world.

AMOUR is booking from 2 May 2019 until 8 June 2019 at Charing Cross Theatre, London.


Paris, 1950 – a shy, unassuming civil servant, Dusoleil, lives alone and works diligently in a dreary office. To pass the time, he writes letters to his mother and daydreams about the beautiful Isabelle, who is kept locked away by her controlling husband.

When Dusoleil miraculously gains the ability to walk through walls, he not only begins to lead a double life, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor to right the wrongs of his war-impoverished Parisian neighbours, but also gains the self-confidence to woo Isabelle and, just for a while, live the life he has always longed for.


Starring Gary Tushaw (Ragtime) as Dusoleil and Anna O’Byrne (The Woman In White) as Isabelle and Alasdair Harvey (Sunday In The Park With George) as the Prosecutor, Isabelle’s controlling husband.

The cast is completed by Elissa Churchill (Elephant Steps), Claire Machin (Memphis), Keith Ramsay (The Cereal Café), Steven Serlin (The Wild Party), Alistair So (The King and I), Daniel Stockton (Guys and Dolls) with understudies Laura Barnard and Jack Reitman.
