"A SPARKLING MUSICAL AND AN ENCHANTING ACT OF THEATRICAL REINVENTION.Phillipa Soo is exquisite. Every time she opens her mouth to sing, the stars in Paris’ night sky shine brighter."Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times
AMÉLIE is the new Broadway musical based on the beloved five-time Oscar®-nominated film and starring Tony® nominee Phillipa Soo (Hamilton) in the title role.
Shy Amélie lives quietly in the world, but loudly in her mind… where life is filled with mischievous adventures, a garden gnome can be a world traveler, a goldfish can be her dearest friend and true love is as magical as she imagines. Longing to connect with others, Amélie covertly improvises small, but extraordinary acts of kindness that bring happiness to those around her. But everything changes when she becomes captivated by a mysterious young photographer. Gathering the courage to follow her heart, she embarks on her biggest adventure yet—a journey out of her imagination and into his arms.
Directed by Tony winner Pam MacKinnon (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), with a book by Pulitzer Prize and Tony nominee Craig Lucas (The Light in the Piazza), music by Daniel Messé and lyrics by Nathan Tysen and Messé, AMÉLIE arrives on Broadway in a heart-lifting and delightfully imagined production that "revels in the infinite possibilities of theatrical merrymaking" (Los Angeles Times) and captures all the quirky wonder of the film… no subtitles required!
