Check out Amélie The Musical’s West End Live 2021 performance…
Amélie is the Grammy and Olivier Award-nominated show based on the 2001 French film Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulai.
The show’s limited West End season comes to an end on 25 September – although producers have teased further plans to be announced this autumn.
The musical features music by Hem’s Daniel Messé, lyrics by Nathan Tysen and Daniel Messé and book by Craig Lucas with direction by Michael Fentiman.
Amélie secretly improvises small, but extraordinary acts of kindness discovering the possibilities around every corner and bringing happiness to those she encounters. 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.
Audrey Brisson, who created the title role at The Watermill in 2019, said: “Amelie has been a real beacon of faith and hope to all of us who sometimes struggle to put ourselves out there amongst people.
“As we near the end of this run, I cannot help but feel lucky to have been part of this wonderful show as we reopened the West End. What better story to tell, now, than that of people learning how to reconnect with one another?”
