Amélie The Musical, based on the much-loved film, will transfer to the West End this Christmas.
Starring French-Canadian stage and screen star Audrey Brisson as Amélie Poulain, the story of an imaginative and shy romantic with a gift for helping others, will play at The Other Palace in Westminster from November 29.
Amélie is the story of a 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.
With music by Hem’s Daniel Messé, lyrics by Nathan Tysen and Daniel Messé and book by Craig Lucas, this new musical adaptation of the film written by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Guillaume Laurant, is directed by Michael Fentman.
Michael Fentiman said: “I really hope London audiences will be enchanted by our little Parisian tale.
“The show was created 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.”
