The music, big choruses and goodnatured showbiz of elegant ensemble scene-changes in Michael Fentiman’s production of Amelie somehow makes the tale of the sweet-natured waitress (who interferes in everyone’s life while blind to her own needs) genuinely work.
For the show to lure a nervous (but now fully vaccinated – yay!) me back to the theatre after nearly 15 months, it’s hard to imagine more soothing fare than Amelie The Musical.
A trio of cast recording reviews covers musicals Amélie The Musical, Cases and After You – each one a winner in its own way.
Following its successful Christmas season at The Other Palace in 2019, a Grammy nomination and three Olivier Award nominations, Amélie The Musical arrives at the West End’s Criterion Theatre from 20 May 2021.
This charmingly quirky musical is captured wonderfully on this newly released cast recording.
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.
Amélie The Musical will transfer to London’s The Other Palace from 29 November 2019 to 1 February 2020 (press night is 3 December), following its current UK tour and its season premiere at the Watermill in Newbury in April.
As sweet-sharp as a diabolo grenadine, Amélie the Musical has lost none of its inimitable charm as it gears up for a considerable UK tour.
A sensational adaptation of the film, Amélie the Musical completely captures my heart – see it now at the Watermill Theatre and then touring across the UK.
