The nominations have been announced for this year’s Olivier Awards which take place on 5 April 2020 at the Royal Albert Hall.
As with last year, there were too many brilliant performances to restrict this to one combined list – so once again I’ve split them up into male and female performances.
Here’s our Top 10 list for 2019 with three musicals – Come From Away, Curve’s West Side Story and the touring production of Amelie dominating the top spots.
Not too much more to say about Amélie the Musical, now in London at The Other Palace, other than book now for un moment merveilleux.
Here’s Love London Love Culture’s guide to some of the best shows opening in December.
The cult French film Amélie has been on a long journey to get to the UK and it’s finally set down here for a shortbread-box-sweet tour which captures the whimsy and delight of the film wonderfully.
Amelie is a magical show; with puppets, flying lampshades, a singing gnome and terrifying figs. I couldn’t fault it, and judging from the audience reaction, they couldn’t either.
Amélie is my favourite French film, and where I first discovered the magical Audrey Tautou; the prospect of seeing it performed onstage was an intriguing one, with the film’s slightly quirky and surreal nature
As dainty and delectable as a well-cooked soufflé, the new stage musical Amélie is a feather-light confection of pure charm. Based on the affectionately remembered 2001 film, Amélie focuses on a sweet young woman who seeks only the happiness of others.
