Spectacularly unique and filled with passion, this filmed version of the hit Broadway musical Hamilton is exquisite to watch – no matter how many times you have seen it.
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
Dave Malloy’s score is quite simply astounding. Beginning with a sole accordion, in the early stages it all sounds quite traditional and very recognisably Russian (without straying into stereotypes), but as it goes on there is more of a modern tinge to the music.
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.
