Amélie The Musical will receive its London stage premiere at The Other Palace Theatre this Christmas.
Inspired by the much loved five-time Oscar nominated film starring Audrey Tautou, Amelie is the story of an imaginative and shy romantic with a gift for helping others.
Described as ‘an enchanting act of theatrical reinvention’ (The Los Angeles Times), this new stage adaptation by Watermill Theatre is ‘a visual treat’ (The Observer ★★★★), ‘a magical and emotional triumph’ (The Guardian ★★★★) and ‘irresistible‘ (The Times ★★★★).
Directed by Michael Fentiman, the show has music by Hem’s Daniel Messé, lyrics by Nathan Tysen and Daniel Messé and book by Craig Lucas.
Michael Fentiman said, “I really hope London audiences will be enchanted by our little Parisian Tale. The show was originally created in the beautiful and inspiring Watermill Theatre, with some of the most skilled performers and creatives I have ever had the privilege to work with. We are led by the wonderful Audrey Brisson, who (I am sure you will agree) was born to play the role of ‘Amelie’. ”
Following its London engagement, the musical will embark on an international tour, with dates to be announced.
Amelie The Musical will run from 29 November 2019 until 1 February 2020 at The Other Palace Theatre, London.
