About the show
Amélie tells the story of an extraordinary young woman, whose mind is far louder than her voice, spending her days performing small acts of kindness for those around her. Soon a chance at love comes her way, but she must learn to say what’s in her heart in order to achieve it.
Phillipa Soo, a Tony-nominated actress known for originating the roles of Eliza Hamilton in Hamilton and Natasha Rostova in Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812, stars as Amélie. She is joined by Adam Chanler-Berat (Sunday in the Park with George) as Nino, Tony Sheldon (Priscilla Queen of the Desert) as Dufayel/Collignon, and Manoel Felciano (Cabaret) as Raphael/Bretodeau.
Amelie features music by Daniel Messé, with lyrics by Messé and Nathan Tysen (Tuck Everlasting), and a book by Craig Lucas (The Light in the Piazza, An American in Paris). The production is directed by Pam MacKinnon (Clybourne Park, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) with musical staging and choreography by Sam Pinkleton, and puppet design by Amanda Villalobos.
A charming tale of love, dreams and kindness, Amélie is a delightful new musical sure to become a firm new classic.
