Amélie is the story of an astonishing young woman who lives quietly in the world, but loudly in her mind. She secretly improvises small, but extraordinary acts of kindness that bring happiness to those around her. But when a chance at love comes her way, Amélie realises that to find her own contentment she’ll have to risk everything and say what’s in her heart. Although times are hard for dreamers, Amélie is someone to believe in…
The musical features music by Hem’s Daniel Messé, lyrics by Nathan Tysen and Daniel Messé and book by Craig Lucas.
Talking about the show, director 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’. Amelie is a show about making connections, the simple acts of kindness that pull people closer, not further apart… In such divisive times, we all
need a little piece of Amelie.”
Amelie will play at The Other Palace from the 29th November until the 1st February 2020.
