WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Tony Award nominee Phillipa Soo returns to Broadway in Amélie, a new musical based on the beloved five-time Oscar-nominated film. Amélie is an extraordinary young woman who lives quietly in the world but loudly in her mind. She covertly improvises small yet surprising acts of kindness that bring joy to those around her. But when a chance at love comes her way, Amélie realizes that to find happiness she'll have to risk everything and say what's in her heart. Come be inspired by this imaginative dreamer who finds her voice, discovers the power of connection, and sees possibility around every corner. In these uncertain times, Amélie is someone to believe in.
Amélie is directed by Tony winner Pam MacKinnon (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?). The musical has a book by Pulitzer Prize and Tony nominee Craig Lucas (The Light in the Piazza) and an original score by Daniel Messé and Nathan Tysen.
