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.
