Amélie The Musical will release an original London cast recording, it's been revealed.

Based on the Academy Award and BAFTA nominated 2001 romantic comedy film, Amélie features music by Daniel Messé, lyrics by Messé and Nathan Tysen and a book by Craig Lucas.

The musical recently concluded a run at The Other Palace following a first UK tour.

The production was directed by Michael Fentiman who announced on Twitter this week that the cast was recording an album.

"Today we recorded the @AmelieMusicalUK original London cast album. So. That’s official. #amelieoriginallondoncastrecording," he wrote on the social media website.

A release date for the cast recording is to be confirmed.

Talented French-Canadian actress Audrey Brisson played the title role in the production, which received rave reviews.

Alongside Brisson, the cast featured Sophie Crawford as ‘Gina’, Faoileann Cunningham as ‘Georgette’ / ‘Sylvie’, Rachel Dawson as ‘Andamine’ / ‘Philomene’, Oliver Grant as ‘Lucien’ / ‘Mysterious Man’, Chris Jared as ‘Nino Quincampoix’, Caolan McCarthy as ‘Hippolito’ / ‘Elton John’, Samuel Morgan-Grahame as ‘Joseph’ / ‘Fluffy’, Emma Jane Morgan as ‘Delphine’, Kate Robson-Stuart as ‘Suzanne’, Josh Sneesby as ‘Blind Beggar’, Jez Unwin as Raphael / Bretodeau and Johnson Willis as Collignon / Dufayel.

Amélie tells the story of a shy waitress living in Paris who discretely orchestrates the lives of the people around her.

The musical adaptation premiered in 2015 in Berkeley with Samantha Barks in the title role, before transferring to Broadway in 2017 with Phillipa Soo.

An original Broadway cast recording featuring Soo is available now.
